15 Blogs Every Travel Addict Should Read

06/12/2022 by Kristin Addis 59 Comments

These days, there are millions upon millions of blogs. Of those, a good number are travel blogs, and new ones are constantly emerging. There’s a pretty obvious way, as I see it, to tell the really golden ones from the duds that won’t last for long.

It’s the writing, the level of authority on the subject, the conversational tone, and feeling that I’m now let into their world, how they think, and what they really like to experience when traveling. Those are the blogs I keep coming back to over and over.

In some cases, I came to meet and get to know the person writing it after already having discovered the blog, but for most, I don’t know the writer at all. Yet I search out their blogs before I even look in Google when I want travel ideas or need to be uplifted.

The following are the best blogs you should be reading if you love travel as much as I do. Both old and new, popular and up-and-coming, and drawn from a large range of niches and focuses, these are my favorites:

Table of Contents

Solo Travel

1. alex in wanderland.

travel bloggers reading

I knew about Alex’s blog when I first started traveling and blogging, and even emailed her when I had questions about scuba diving (she spends a lot of time as an underwater videographer on Koh Tao in Thailand). However, it wasn’t until relying on her post about Elephant Falls in Da Lat, Vietnam, that I started to read her regularly, after realizing that we had a similar travel style. 

We are now friends and have even gone on trips together! Her personality shines through in both her writing and her pictures. She manages never to come off as anything but kind and lovely rather than authoritative and commanding. Her post “ Gratitude at Twenty Five ” so eloquently describes the amazing years she’s had traveling and is a great way to get to know her blog if you don’t already.

2. Fueled by Wanderlust

travel bloggers reading

Focusing on locations in the USA, Caribbean, and Europe, Theresa from Fueled by Wanderlust provides detailed travel guides that are super handy for solo travelers. Although she doesn’t always travel solo, each post has plenty of tips for you if you’re heading out alone.

Since Theresa works full time as an accountant, her content is especially relatable for travel enthusiasts who balance their career with frequent trips. Her budget guides are a gold mine and post like this one about the best time to visit the US Virgin Islands are full of advice that make planning a solo trip so much easier.

3. Bacon Is Magic

travel bloggers reading

Ayngelina is another one of those writers who keeps it real. Completely real. She left a stable career and boyfriend at 30 to travel solo for a year in South America. Apart from liking her because she seemed like a total badass, I gained a lot of my solo traveling courage from her words.

She’s also refreshingly honest, open, and full of love and loss that just about everyone has experienced, so I love reading her blog partially because it guided me through some of the toughest times I had at home and on the road.

4. Wandering Earl 

travel bloggers reading

If you read travel blogs at all, then you’re probably familiar with Wandering Earl. His is one of the first I ever read and became hooked on after the post “ Please Don’t Be Afraid to Travel On Your Own .” I have reread that post — and sent it along to friends who are on the fence about traveling — many times over the past few years. That post truly made a big impact and was hugely important for me to read during the early days of my travel planning. He let me know this lifestyle is possible solo and showed me how easy it is to meet people on the road. For that, I’ll always be a fan.

5. Young Adventuress

travel bloggers reading

Liz is one of the most down-to-earth travel bloggers out there, making her content a joy to read. Not only are her travel guides detailed and informative, but she isn’t afraid to share her unique and brutally honest opinion. As a solo female traveler, I find this helpful and insightful.

Young Adventuress includes a plethora of outdoorsy locations, trekking guides, and more, while also having a neat balance of luxury travel recommendations as well. Her storytelling style really draws the reader in, and her sense of humor comes through perfectly in her writing. If you want a good laugh and a reminder of the ever-so human side of traveling, definitely give her a read.

Budget Travel

6. expert vagabond.

travel bloggers reading

Simply put, Matt does cool stuff, and he goes to really cool places. As far as those who travel off the beaten path in a genuine way, I look to Matt for new ideas for destinations and for his awesome photos. He’s adventurous and outdoorsy, and I was delighted to get the chance to hang out and  accidentally rock climb  with him when we happened to be in Thailand at the same time.

A few months ago, he surprised me again with the post “ My Caveman Experience: Squatting with Gypsies in Spain .” He tends to shine light on the things society is scared of or doesn’t know as much about, and that’s why I keep reading, because I know he’ll make an awesome discovery and illustrate it with really well-captured photos.

7. Nomadic Matt

travel bloggers reading

Nomadic Matt’s blog seems natural for me to mention here, particularly because I am now a regular monthly columnist on his site, but his is actually the first travel blog I read. When I first started researching long-term travel online, Matt’s was the first one that opened my eyes to the possibility of doing this as a lifestyle. I had no idea before reading articles like “ The Ultimate Guide to Traveling When You Have No Money ” that I could do it, too.

That’s why it’s such a pleasure to be more involved with his site now, but I genuinely would recommend consistently checking Matt’s site regardless of that. He’s unquestionably the expert when it comes to budget travel.

Luxury Travel

8. the blonde abroad.

travel bloggers reading

Truthfully, The Blonde Abroad could be categorized as a solo female travel, budget travel, or even a couples travel blog because of how much she has packed onto her site. For real though, this girl is killing it with her range, making it a great one-stop place for many different kinds of travelers.

Recently Kiki, the blog’s founder, has upped her game when it comes to luxury travel, which is why she’s in this category. From her tips for upgrading your Emirates flight to first class with points to the best eco-hotels out there , she’s got you covered for your next splurge-worthy adventure.

9. ZeebaLife

travel bloggers reading

Including luxury destinations all over the world, Claudia of ZeebaLife has mastered the art of enticing her readers to visit far away lands to see the very best that these places have to offer. My favorite thing about her blog is her commitment to balancing luxury travel and sustainability, something we value here on our corner of the internet as well.

Not only is ZeebaLife all about finding the absolute best places to stay, excursions, and food in a given place, but she also provides awesome tips on traveling with a family. Sure, we could put ZeebaLife in the family travel category, but she’s definitely a luxury lifestyle queen and one of the best sources for this kind of travel.

Couples Travel

10. dots on a map.

travel bloggers reading

You might recognize Dottie from her post on BMTM about Oaxaca City . She and her partner Lenza are a multi-cultural, multi-talented duo who make diverse content ranging from excellent food recommendations, to neat historical posts about specific places, like this comprehensive History of Carnitas in Mexico City .

Dottie’s brilliant writing paired with Lenza’s photography skills make for a glorious picture of the places they visit. A big bonus is that their blog includes detailed descriptions of the street art scene in different places, which is a unique take on travel and culture.

11. Atlas & Boots

travel bloggers reading

Kia and Peter are outdoors travel extraordinaires, providing all the details on some amazing hiking, trekking, and backpacking destinations. Their photography skills are on point too, making for some beautiful blog posts that are sure to make any couple want to book a ticket and start exploring far away places.

For digital nomad couples, Kia and Peter have an entire section of Atlas & Boots dedicated to remote working . They’re a great example of a couple who embraces the unknowns of traveling with an open mind and willingness to cast off their daily routine for a more adventurous lifestyle.

Family Travel

12. 2traveldads.

travel bloggers reading

This family travel blog is wholesome and sweet, offering a unique perspective on traveling as an LGBTQ family. Chis and Rob Taylor, the blog’s founders, focus on traveling as education for their two sons. The blog is full of travel tips for how to make trips into a memorable and educational experience for children of all ages.

As this is the first ever LGBTQ family travel blog, you’ll find loads of information about visibility while traveling, which is difficult to find. Even if you aren’t an LGBTQ family, the travel guides like this one on California are applicable for anyone with children.

13. Y Travel

travel bloggers reading

When it comes to family travel blogs, Y Travel is about as well-known as it gets. For good reason, too! This nomadic family has been on the road for decades, sharing valuable insight to the places they’ve been. A huge bonus for reading their blog is that they’ve lived in 5 different countries, meaning they provide more in-depth insight into those places than a regular traveler can.

Although the Makepeace family has settled a bit since their longer trips, like their 18-month road trip around Australia , they’re still doing shorter trips and writing along the way. Not only can you follow along on their blog, but they also have a great podcast which is loaded with travel tips for families.

Miscellaneous

14. mark manson.

mark manson website

Mark was a location independent world traveler for over five years. While his blog does not focus on travel, per se, it focuses on ambition, self-worth, discipline, and becoming a more effective communicator, leader, and human being in general. I read almost every single blog that Mark puts out, but his 7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life Purpose is a recent one that really stood out for its look at finding what makes you tick.

For a lot of people, pursuing a passion or creating a life they’re happy to live every day is the one thing they’re most afraid to do. I know, I was one of them. But reading blogs like this reminds me of why I’m doing what I’m doing and reaffirms my choices to pursue a location independent lifestyle, even if it’s not as lucrative as what I did before.

15. Zen Pencils

zen pencils

Zen Pencils is not a travel blog, but rather an inspirational series of comics that Gav expertly chooses and illustrates perfectly. A lot of what he chooses to illustrate could be considered controversial and it’s almost always unexpected. He chooses notable people who talk about breaking the norm, questioning the institutions that put forth ideas we often take for a given throughout our lives, and push the idea of following one’s passions.

Though so many of his are amazing, and the perfect pick-me-up when I need inspiration or a reminder that I’m still on a path to growth even if it’s not meteoric, my favorite is his illustration of  Bill Hicks: It’s just a ride .

Though there are a lot of awesome blogs out there that cover relevant things and are written by super talented bloggers, many of whom I consider friends, these are the ones in my heavy rotation at the moment. There are also a lot of lifestyle, marketing, and business blogs that I love to read, but more on those another time.

Great recommendations. I have heard of a lot but not the first so I’m popping over to check it out!

Kristin says

12/04/2014 at 8:24 am

They’re all great but hers is wonderful for Southeast Asia which is a place I love as well.

Ayngelina says

12/04/2014 at 8:21 am

So honoured to be on this list and excited to find a few that I hadn’t heard before. I think the true magic in blogs is when we discover we’re not alone. We can identify with the writer and feel a connection even though we’ve never met them.

Completely agree. Impersonal ones that are just facts are super helpful too if I’m doing some travel planning, but I really do like feeling a connection with the author if it’s a website I’m going to revisit frequently.

Marie @ Marie Away says

12/04/2014 at 8:28 am

Thanks for the tips! I’m always looking for new blog recommendations, and I’ve found a few here I need to check out. Cheers!

12/04/2014 at 11:34 am

No problem!

12/04/2014 at 9:34 am

Thank you for all the recommendations! I love reading about travel almost as much as I love traveling.

12/04/2014 at 11:33 am

Definitely, and many of these are not straight up travel, per se, but the mindset that accompanies it or is needed to make it happen

Caitlin says

12/04/2014 at 11:04 am

I’m a big fan of Adventurous Kate as well!

12/04/2014 at 11:55 am

Yep, when I was planning my Southeast Asia travels some of her posts helped me feel secure about going it alone.

Franca says

12/04/2014 at 12:11 pm

Great list, I know already some of these bloggers but there are few new names for me that I’ll make sure to check out 🙂

12/04/2014 at 3:53 pm

A few aren’t really travel blogs but are super inspiring and wonderful reads.

12/04/2014 at 1:06 pm

There are a lot of goodies and some new ones I haven’t heard of. I love the blogging community and the support within it – posts like these (and Comment Luv) have made me find a lot of my favourites.

12/04/2014 at 3:52 pm

I also like that when traveling the world, I know I’ll run into a friend somewhere, just because we’re all traveling all the time!

Tom @ Waegook Tom says

12/04/2014 at 5:14 pm

Thanks for including me here, I’m among great company I see! I’m not familiar with all the blogs here though, so plenty of new reading for me 🙂

12/04/2014 at 5:45 pm

For sure. Your blog always makes me laugh! By the way please bring back daily duck face 🙂

Glamourous Traveller says

12/04/2014 at 6:56 pm

Cool recommendations! I’m familiar with 1-2 of them so always good to be introduced to more. I like your mix of super adventurous travellers as well as those that choose to spend time in single locations for long periods of time (more sedate?) =)

12/05/2014 at 1:39 am

I like that too. I feel like I’m somewhere in between.

Crystal says

12/04/2014 at 9:30 pm

Kristin this post is awesome! A few I followed but now I have a great database of exceptional blogs! What a great idea for a post 🙂 Crystal

12/05/2014 at 1:35 am

Glad you enjoyed it!

Daniel McBane says

12/04/2014 at 11:37 pm

Thanks for including me here! I’m happy you managed to find some useful information among my ramblings. Perhaps some day my other two readers might find one of my posts helpful, too, but I doubt it. My parents don’t really travel that much and only ever to Germany.

Speaking of, you’re in Berlin? I was there for a year and a half and just left earlier this year. I’m shocked you didn’t mention how helpful you found my grand total of three Berlin posts, none of which are really even about the city. Yeah, I failed there, but everyone seems to write about Berlin, so I couldn’t be bothered.

Haha I’m sure you have more than two other readers! You were really the only one who had written about the places in China I was visiting (now I have too, sorry). I’m in the same boat – haven’t written about Berlin. I’m still getting to know it and formulating what I want to say. One can’t just casually talk about a place like this!

12/05/2014 at 3:53 am

Awesome picks. I’m excited to discover some new reads and was happy to see Alex right up there at the top. She’s been a favorite of mine for a couple of years now (and love her site redesign).

12/05/2014 at 4:48 am

Her site looks great!

Ligeia and Mindy says

12/05/2014 at 5:03 am

Very nice and diverse list. 🙂

12/05/2014 at 6:24 am

Good to keep the reading diverse!

12/05/2014 at 5:15 am

I’m obsessed with Mark Manson. I know a few others but these are mostly new to me! Will definitely be checking them out! Love finding new blogs 🙂

He’s so spot on. I really like his law of Fuck yes and no as well.

The Guy says

Great list and thanks for the suggestions. I’ve for a long time been familiar with Alex in Wanderland, Nomadic Matt, Daniel McBane and Wandering Earl. Most of the others are new to me and I’m excited to find out why they are on your reading list.

It is true that many bloggers come and go and the travel field is a very crowded one. Too crowded sometimes. I’ve been doing this for just over 2 years and I feel like a beginner compared to some of these fabulous writers.

12/05/2014 at 6:22 am

After two years I suppose we are both still beginners compared to these guys 🙂

12/05/2014 at 7:28 am

I’m so excited about (A) being included on this list, which is an honor, and (B) checking out some new blogs I didn’t know about before! Thanks for the intos, Kristin!

12/05/2014 at 10:49 am

For sure! You belong here!

12/05/2014 at 8:47 pm

Just a big thank you for the mention above and I’m really glad that you found that post useful! I have to re-read it myself at times so that I don’t forget how easy it is to meet people almost anywhere on the planet.

12/07/2014 at 3:22 am

I forget that too. I get scared every time I’m about to head somewhere by myself only to laugh in retrospect because just about everywhere, it’s possible to meet others.

12/06/2014 at 11:59 pm

Kristin, these are great. I’m already hopelessly engrossed in the depths of “butwaitwhy.”

Might I recommend turning the blog names into anchor text, so people can click through? I cringe when I consider what might have happened were I to have been too lazy to type “butwaitwhy.com” into my browser. I might have continued living my entire life without awareness of how great it is. ;D

Thanks for the links. I should have known better to start investigating these sites you recommend here. Where did my free time go?

12/07/2014 at 3:21 am

Glad you like Wait But Why! I didn’t link to the homepage in the blog names because in the description I linked to the specific post I recommend for each blog, but that’s not a bad idea.

Charlie says

12/07/2014 at 12:14 pm

It’s fantastic to read one of these lists and find some blogs I’d never heard of, and even better when those blogs turn out to be addictive reads! I’ve just spent the last hour reading through posts on Wait But Why, how I’m ever going to get some work done today I don’t know! Thanks for sharing these!

12/08/2014 at 2:07 am

Nice to see Alex’s blog as recommendation.. I have been following her blog from a long time…

12/08/2014 at 7:48 am

hers is one of the first ones I ever found.

Raquel Mars says

12/08/2014 at 11:28 am

Thanks a lot! I will be checking these blogs soon 🙂 I’ve been actually considering leaving my city right after graduation, see where life, my savings and my abilities take me, so I’m taking on reading as much of other people’s experiences as I can, to both be warned and be inspired about it. It’ll be extremely helpful, thanks 🙂

12/08/2014 at 1:38 pm

That’s a great idea. I read travel blogs like it was my job before I took off on my own trip!

Tawny of Captain and Clark says

12/09/2014 at 7:21 pm

Love this list! There are some of our favorites on here as well as some new ones that we’re excited to check out.

12/12/2014 at 1:46 am

Thanks Tawny! I also love your blogs and especially your videos!

Ryan Biddulph says

12/16/2014 at 7:18 am

All are winners Kristin, and I follow more than a few from this list. I love Earl’s blog, and Matt’s blog is way cool too. One secret is to follow a travel blogger who has an authentic voice. Even though I don’t run a travel blog per se, I do offer blogging tips from paradise, and i blog here and there about my tropical hot spots/homes with posts featuring where I happen to be at the time. When I blog, I blog from my heart, which means I’ll be offering my insights from a genuine, authentic space.I feel that’s what makes me stand out from the crowd.

As for the list above I’d say Earl is my fave. He offers such simple yet powerful advice, with no wasted motion. He also inspired me to be more assertive and social on the road. Even though I travel with my fiancee Kelli I did spend a month in Thailand this past year alone. She had to stick around in the States to take care of some stuff and I had to do the solo bit. Seeing his blog inspired me to do more stuff on my own, which was such a rewarding experience for me.

I tend to go into a travel cave when I do the solo bit but this time I did more stuff outside, taking selfies, chatting with folks and meeting more friends than I ever had in CM. One downside of non solo travel is that you’re automatically not as approachable, but when you do solo, people chat with you more freely. Happened to me quite a bit in Fiji this past year too, as when I walked into town in Savusavu without Kelli folks would strike up conversations with me, with like little effort.

I’d engage, we’d be invited to someone’s house for grog, and we struck up more friendships with both Fijians and other expats, or tourists, from Australia, Ireland, Finland, and from other places too. It was a hoot!

Thanks Kristin, love this list. Bookmarking a few as we speak!

12/16/2014 at 11:06 am

I agree with the merits of solo travel. Especially selfies 😉 Just kidding I don’t take many of those, but it does open you up to meeting all kinds of people and ending up in situations that simply wouldn’t happen if you were with someone else. I definitely firmly believe that. All of my craziest and most amazing stories happened because I was by myself. I see the merits of couple’s travel as well, for sure, but solo travel is definitely a gift everyone should give him or herself. I’ve been doing it for over 2 years now and it’s still my preferred method.

Alicia says

12/18/2014 at 8:56 pm

Great recommendations, i’ll definitely be checking out some of these favourites! Love the blog by the way chick! 🙂

12/19/2014 at 5:40 am

Pauline says

01/03/2015 at 10:31 pm

Thanks for the list, I have a lot of reading to do, now!

Maxine Pants says

11/27/2015 at 1:51 pm

What was your first blog post?!?!

12/22/2016 at 9:32 pm

My favorite blog on this list is definitely Wandering Earl. He keeps it real and I appreciate that.

02/14/2017 at 6:11 am

These are all great sites but they all seem to be young people. As a regular reader in his early sixties I love the young enthusiasm in yours and other blogs. My wife and I have used several of your travel tips on some of our outings. However, for us old backpackers there are many blogs to prove that you are never to old to travel. The first is a couple in their late forties who travel and work: http://www.travellifex.com/ The second blog, and one of my favourites, is a couple in their early seventies. They sold everything up in 2011 and have been house sitting and travelling around the globe since: https://alisonanddon.com/

Keep on truckin’ Kristin

02/17/2017 at 1:29 am

Thanks for this! Yes people of all ages travel. I guess I just connect with these guys more because I feel more similar to them 🙂

Adventographer says

11/05/2017 at 7:01 pm

Some great recommendations here, I knew of many of these blogs but you turned me on to a couple new ones as well! Thanks for that! Wandering Earl and Mark Manson were good finds!

11/05/2017 at 10:10 pm

wandering earl was one of the first ones I ever found. Love that one!

Adhisivan M says

10/23/2018 at 9:43 am

seriously motivating a lot. Mam, can you please give some advise to an Engineering student who is more passionate about travelling and aspiring to be a travel blogger. ?

10/24/2018 at 12:22 am

Yes I have tips here https://www.bemytravelmuse.com/how-to-start-a-travel-blog/

Simran Kaur says

11/19/2019 at 12:03 am

Great Recommendations! Will check them out… I also wanna become a great travel blogger one day. I am learning website designing and will soon make my blog. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Theresa says

06/19/2022 at 7:49 am

It’s incredible to be included on a list of so many blogs I admire! Thank you so much 🙂

06/22/2022 at 5:25 am

I really don’t get the appeal of some of these. The big names like Nomadic Matt and The Blonde Abroad are on every list, yet they just seem so,…. blah. Like it doesn’t feel like real travel. Some of these are great rec’s and found some new ones, so I’ll definitely check them out.

11 Best Books by Travel Bloggers

This post may contain affiliate links that earn me a commission at no additional cost to you.

Dreaming of travel? Check out these books by travel bloggers. Get inspired and learn practical travel advice from these expert travelers!

For many years I have loved reading travel blogs. I don’t remember when I first found out they existed. But it was sometime during college that I came across  Adventurous Kate  and got inspired by her story of quitting her job at age twenty-six to travel the world.

I became obsessed with reading travel blogs in college while working at internships where I would count down the hours until I left. It became a routine during my lunch hour to read travel blogs and dream of the day when I could do the same thing.

And eventually, it happened to me too. I finally started my own blog, which turned into running several successful blogs and earning enough money that I could quit my corporate job at twenty-five to travel for a year.

That would have NEVER happened for me if I hadn’t come across travel blogs and gotten the inspiration. Both from travel stories and practical how-to guides that let me know it was possible.

While I love reading blogs themselves, many travel bloggers have also gotten book deals or self-published their own books.

So if you are looking to curl up with a good travel book that will inspire your wanderlust, check out these excellent books written by travel bloggers.

You’ll find a mix of travel memoirs and useful guides that will help you travel more.

These are the best books by travel bloggers to add to your reading list:

The Best Travel Blogs in 2023 (To Inspire You)

Finding the best travel blogs online can be a challenge. I know, I have read a whole bunch of them!

That’s why this post is a roundup of some of the top travel blogs on the web. Blogs I read throughout the year for inspiration (and frustration that I am not traveling at the moment).

From solo travel, foodie travel to family travel, there is something in here for everyone! And you will certainly get some great information and inspirational travel quotes on these blogs!

Solo Travel Blogs

Adventurous kate.

Topic: Travel Blog

Blog Owner:  Kate McCulley

With over 67 countries under her belt, Kate is one adventurous female traveler! And she certainly has one of the top travel blogs on the web.

She originally left her job with the intention of traveling for 6 months, and 6 years later she can explore the world for a living! So, if this is your dream job, she might be someone to follow.

She is also a big advocate of solo female travelers and trying to dispel the myths that women can’t travel alone. Go Kate!

Nomadic Matt

Blog Owner:  Matthew Kepnes

If you search for almost anything related to travel online, you will trip over the Nomadic Matt blog. So, of course he has to be mentioned here, he has one of the best travel blogs around!

Matt has a very similar backstory to most travellers. Backpacking in Asia, not wanting to go back to work. A long life on the road since that faithful day back in July 2006.

Matt’s site is epic. And full of so many travel tips, resources, guides and tips that it will take you a year to get through it all. 

It’s a must read for any upcoming trip you have planned!

A Backpacker’s Tale

Topic:  Backpacking Travel

Blog Owner:  Stephen Schreck

Another longer term traveler, Stephen has been on the go for over 3 years.

He first discovered his passion for travel while at college on a trip to Ireland, and decided to make it his life.

He loves traveling the world, so if that is your dream, check him out. 

Oh, and one last thing, he is currently taking over (Dec 2016) a tour in New Zealand, so if you want to go on the road with him, now is your chance!

The Blonde Abroad

Topic:  Solo Travel

Blog Owner:  Kiersten

Ditching her job in corporate finance, Kiersten’s goal on her travel blog is: “to inspire you to live a life you love and settle for nothing less than extraordinary.”

She has certainly been to see the world, visiting over 50 countries, volunteering and is now consulting on the side.

If solo female travel is something your aspire to, then Kiersten is someone you should be following!

Wandering Earl

Topic:  Independent Travel

Blog Owner:  Derek (middle name Earl)

This is one of those travel blogs where the guy has been traveling forever – since December 1999 to be exact. That was when he landed in Thailand with the intention of staying for 3 months. Sound familiar?

With over 16 years travel experience, Derek has been through it all: learning Spanish in Mexico to working as a Tour Manager on board cruise ships, acting in a Bollywood television show, a three-day kidnapping in Bangladesh and teaching English in Asia. To name a few.

He also runs his own tour company, and with the experience he has, I am sure it will be a tour to remember!

So, if you want to learn and experience what a pro-traveler is all about, check out Derek’s blog for some great travel tips.

Alex in Wanderland

Topic:  Independent Travel

Blog Owner:  Alexandra Baackes

Traveling and working on the road since 2011, Alex has been around the globe and back.

Originally a New Yorker, she now makes a living while on the road and has been to more countries than I can count on my hands (and feet).

As you can tell from her blog, she has a talent for design (and photography ) and seems to spend a lot of time in the water – scuba diving!

She is worth following, especially if you want to combine travel and photography, which is something most travel bloggers should do well.

Blog Owner: Clint

I think has the record in this list, with over 100 countries visited!

Although, unlike most here he also works or was a student while doing it.

His obsession is travel hacking, so finding you the best way to travel (fly, accommodation etc) without paying full price. If that sounds like a good plan to you (does to me!) then put his blog on your to-read list right now!

So, if you want a different take on travel, start reading her blog today!

Be My Travel Muse

Blog Owner: Kristin Addis

Kristin has a different take on travel to most – go where others don’t go and travel how others don’t travel.

She has been on the road since late 2012 and has immersed herself in local cultures and experiences like almost no one else.

Just to give you an example of how she rolls, in her own words she has: 

hitchhiked solo across China, climbed some of the tallest mountains in the world, done some of the deepest SCUBA dives, did a 35-day safari in Africa, spent two months hiking in Patagonia, and even became a Buddhist nun for 10 days.

Johnny Vagabond

Topic:  Solo Travel 

Blog Owner: Wes Nations

Wes is someone who loves to travel “low and slow” as he calls it. Using local transportation and taking the time to get to know the culture.

He is a low-budget traveler who is worth following as his budget has taught him how to get around, stay traveling and live an amazing lifestyle without a huge amount of cash.

A bit later to the travel life than most, Wes is not looking back now, and neither should you!

I Am Aileen

Blog Owner: Aileen Adalid

Aileen is an adventurous Filipino lass who left home at the age of 21 and never looked back!

Currently freezing her butt off in New York, Aileen will help motivate travelers all around the world to pack their backs and just “get going”!

For your next travel inspiration go check out her site!

Brendan’s Adventures

Topic:  Solo Travel & Photography

Blog Owner: Brendan van Son

Brendan is a traveler who combines great photography with what he does!

If you want to learn from one of the best, someone who teaches photography, travels and has been featured across the web (Guardian, BBC, National Geographic) this is a blog for you.

Highlights: 5 years, 6 continents, 80 countries and something off the beaten path: a solo scooter trip down the west coast of Africa!

Keep Calm And Travel

Blog Owner: Clelia Mattana

Clelia is a Sardian-born lass who came to travel later in life than most but has made up for it in a big way.

Her big life adventures and escape from the run of the mill will inspire anyone.

Although there is a focus on Sardinia and Asia on her site, you will find lots of hidden gems if you keep digging!

Food Travel Blogs

Migrationology.

Topic: Food Travel Blog

Blog Owner:  Mark Wiens

Mark is a self-proclaimed travel-eater. He is all about seeing travel from the food side of things.

He is currently located in Thailand with his wife, and still blogging consistently. But, before he settled down, he not only lived all over the place as a kid, but also after finishing college.

If you are into travel and food (and discovering the culture of a place through it’s food) then this is the blog for you.

Legal Nomads

Blog Owner:  Jodi Ettenberg

Jodi is another traveler who combines her love of travel with food. For her, it started out of necessity – because she is a celiac. But she soon found herself picking her next destination because of the food.

She has also been a long-time traveler, and her blog has now become a great resource for all things travel, food, with a focus also on photography and great travel stories.

Certainly not your run-of-the-mill travel blog and definitely one to check out.

Will Fly For Food

Blog Owners:   JB & Renee

I think the name of their blog sums it all up, but in their own words, this is : “a travel blog for the gastronomically inclined”.

These travel bloggers are drive to travel, but food is the priority. So it that is what gets you out of bed in the morning, their blog will be bookmarked in a flash.

They also have a great resource on their about page – the National Dish Quest , a list of foods that you have to eat in each country, which are ticked off as they complete the task!

Family Travel Blogs

The traveling canucks.

Topic:  Family Travel

Blog Owners: Nicole and Cameron Wears

Traveling as a family, especially with new-borns, is a big challenge. And these two travel bloggers seem to have it all sorted!

Of course, with over 10 years of travel experience, and 65 countries behind them, I am sure that makes it a little easier.

Their aim is to share their travel stories and inspire others to travel.

Tips For Family Trips

Blog Owners: Allison and Katie

Another great resource for those wanting to take their kids on their travels, Tips for Family Trips will fill your to-do list in no time!

These travel bloggers understand the challenges families face on the road and have also “been there and done it”. Something not all advice-givers in the industry can say.

Go check out their blog and see what you think.

Travel With Bender

Blog Owners: Erin & Josh Bender

Two Aussies on the go with their kids since 2012, Erin and Josh run a great blog.

I like to use people’s own descriptions of their blogs when possible, and this is what these guys have to say about their blog’s purpose: “a unique and invaluable travel resource to parents, couples and singles alike”.

So, not 100% family focused, but traveling with their kids certainly has given them knowledge worth sharing!

More Blogs to Add?

Sure, there are thousands of them. And this is not a list of all of them, or all the best ones. It’s just a list of blogs that I think are worth checking out.

So, if you think I have left a gem off the list, don’t be shy, just let me know!

About the Author Roger Timbrook

Roger is a little obsessed with travel. He has been to over 40 countries, broken 3 suitcases and owned over 10 backpacks in 12 months. What he doesn't know about travel, ain't worth knowing!

Travel Wanderlust

Best travel blogs you should read

travel bloggers reading

The idea of being able to explore the world, discover new places and meet interesting people has a certain intrigue, excitement and comfort about it. Just the thought of being able to pack our bags and escape, makes most of us feel happy. 

However, sometimes, life comes in the way and things don’t work out. Our travel plans get cancelled or we are forced to stay at home to help prevent a global pandemic. Speaking from personal experience, it is no joke for a globetrotter to stay at home without knowing when the next holiday will happen. It takes some adjustment and a lot of effort to keep yourself distracted from spiralling into sadness. 

travel bloggers reading

Well, my escape in these circumstances are travel blogs. Being a travel writer myself at Travel Wanderlust , it goes without saying that I love everything about travel blogs. I get to learn about new places and get insight into the unique experiences of fellow travellers. Travel blogs can also be a great source of inspiration for your next vacation.

So, when you are not able to get on the road because of whatsoever reasons, the world doesn’t have to be one dimensional and boring. You can embark upon a unique journey from your home with amazing travel blogs. However, with a sea of choices available on the world wide web, how do you know which travel blogs to read or follow?

Here is a list of some of the best travel blogs you should read:

South East Asia Backpacker

travel bloggers reading

Since I live in Singapore, which is practically the gateway to Southeast Asia, I am always looking for good travel blogs that cover this region. And, after hours of googling, I have come to realise that South East Asia Backpacker is actually one of the best travel blogs that you can refer to when planning a trip anywhere in this region. 

From travel guides to planning hacks and handpicked adventure activities to food– this travel blog covers everything for destinations across Southeast Asia.

You can follow them on Instagram @seabackpacker .

Dan Flying Solo

travel bloggers reading

Restaurant manager turned travel blogger, Daniel James is “obsessed with meeting new people and goats”– according to his bio. I love reading his travel blogs because he shares useful hacks that are practical and budget-friendly. Another reason why I love his blogs is that he has travelled across the world– eleven countries in Asia alone– so I always have a wide range of destination choices to read about. Daniel’s blogs are a haven for solo travellers because he mostly holidays alone.

Currently based out of Portugal, Daniel is not only a great travel writer but he is also an amazing travel photographer, which makes his travel blogs look beautiful. If you want to explore places with a unique, personal perspective of this fellow traveller and are looking for practical hacks and good recommendations, read Dan Flying Solo . You can follow him on Instagram @danflyingsolo .

Travel Inspiration 360

From unique destinations to vegetarian inspirations– Keith is a travel writer who blogs with compassion for the world and that is one of the main reasons why I love reading about his travel experiences and stories. He has been a part of several campaigns that support positive change through travel like the European Commission’s #SheIsWe Campaign and Faces2Hearts Project to name a few.

Going by the tagline of “Singaporean by birth and global citizen by choice”, Nellie Huang is the travel blogger behind Wild Junket . She started travelling way back in 2003 and has been to more than 700 cities in 130 countries across all seven continents. Nellie’s inspiration to become a travel writer came in 2003 when she was in Miami for an exchange program. That is where she met her husband Alberto– they connected over their love for adventure travelling and never looked back!

Wild Junket is a travel blog that has a rich backstory of how it came into being and how it has evolved. Both Nellie and Alberto’s lives revolve around travel and that is what makes reading their travel blogs fun. You can follow them on instagram @wildjunket .

The man behind this unique travel blog — Cranky Flier , Brett is a fascinating travel writer who has been bitten by the airline bug since he was a 12 year-old kid and went to the airport with his grandma just to watch the planes land. 

From the worst airlines of the world to interviews across aisles– Cranky Flier is a travel blog with unique stories and interesting facts. This travel blog is a perfect escape for aviation geeks and flight enthusiasts (Any ‘Up In The Air’ fans here?) If you want to break free from the usual destination guides and travel hacks, head over to this travel blog for a different kind of indulgence. You can follow him on Twitter @crankyconcierge

I love reading travel blogs as they inspire me to look at the world with different perspectives and give me great ideas for planning my holidays. I hope this list of fun travel blogs will not only help you find relevant information for your travels but will also help you discover interesting facts, new places and unique perspectives of some amazing travel writers.

Top 8 Best Blogs On Adventure Travel

When I am not climbing mountains or exploring new destinations, I spend much of my free time reading about adventure. While I am always looking to read the next great book on adventure or the latest addition of Outside Magazine or National Geographic, over the years I have found myself increasingly interested in following the adventure blogs of real life explorers.

Listed below are my Top 8 Best Blogs on Adventure Travel . Each of them are written by individuals who have a gift for storytelling, a thirst for exploration and the courage to blaze their own path through life!

Reading their travel blog sites has helped me to keep motivated, and inspires me to plan my own new epic adventures.

This British adventurer who coined the term ‘micro adventure’ advocates that people don’t need to go across the world to find adventure, but can actually find it closer to home. Although Humphreys has written a best selling book on micro adventures which you can check out HERE , this doesn’t stop him from continuously testing the boundaries of global exploration. Nominated as a National Geographic Adventurer in 2012, Humphreys has crossed Iceland by foot and pack raft, rowed across the Atlantic ocean, and cycled round the world for four years. This adventure travel blog is a must for anyone who loves to explore!

One example is his 7,775-mile, eleven month sea-to-sea route expedition. The sea-to-sea route connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in the United States.

Being awarded the National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2007, Skurka has perfected the art of moving fast and lightly through the mountains, and has actually published a gear guide on the subject titled “The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide: Tools & Techniques to Hit the Trail” which you can find HERE .

5.  Eric Larsen Explore – Eric Larsen

Eric Larsen

Visit Eric’s Blog by click HERE or follow the link below:

The best way to describe explorer Eric Larsen is that he LOVES the cold. The seasoned polar explorer has skied to both the North and South Pole, and after summiting Mount Everest in October of 2010 Eric became the first person to reach the three poles in a 365 day period. He also uses his expeditions as a platform to create awareness on the effects of climate change on the earth.

The blog is penned by Philip Werner, who is an accomplished adventurer and has completed notable adventures such as the 272 mile long trail in Vermont and two coast-to-coast backpacking trips across the Scottish highlands.

15 Travel Books That Will Give You Serious Wanderlust

A man walking in a library full of books

The end of the year is just that time for favorites lists – and I’ve written about the best travel books many times over! I love talking about travel books. Why? Because part of the tool belt of any traveler is a good book. Long bus, train, or plane rides can get pretty boring and can give you a lot of “dead” time if you haven’t mastered the art of the 10-hour blank stare. Additionally, reading travel books helps you learn about the destinations you are visiting. The more you know about a place, the more you can understand a place.

I am a voracious reader and even used to have a book club on this website where I shared all the books I read. Today is another one of those days where I share some of the books I’ve read recently! If you’re looking for some great reads, here are my current list of the best travel books to inspire you to travel to far-off lands:  

1. The Alchemist , by Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist

2. Love With a Chance of Drowning , by Torre DeRoche

Love with a chance of drowning

3. The Caliph’s House: A Year in Casablanca  by Tahir Shah

The Caliph's House: A Year in Casablanca

4. On the Road , by Jack Kerouac

5. Looking for Transwonderland , by Noo Saro-Wiwa

14. From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home , by Tembi Locke

BONUS: Ten Years a Nomad: A Traveler’s Journey Home , by me!

Ten Years a Nomad by Matt Kepnes

Books about travel inspire us to go visit far-off lands and imagine us doing incredible things. Bryson’s In a Sunburned Country inspired me to visit Australia! I hope these travel books inspire you to travel the world and feed your wanderlust. If you have any suggestions that I can add to this best travel books list, leave them in the comments.

If you’d like to see some of the other books I’ve recommended (or are currently reading), check out this page I created on Amazon that lists them all!

You can also find them listed in our Bookshop store, which helps support locally-owned bookstores. If you’re in the US, click here to check out my Bookshop store!

Book Your Trip: Logistical Tips and Tricks

Book Your Flight Find a cheap flight by using Skyscanner . It’s my favorite search engine because it searches websites and airlines around the globe so you always know no stone is being left unturned.

Book Your Accommodation You can book your hostel with Hostelworld . If you want to stay somewhere other than a hostel, use Booking.com as it consistently returns the cheapest rates for guesthouses and hotels.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. It’s comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong. I never go on a trip without it as I’ve had to use it many times in the past. My favorite companies that offer the best service and value are:

  • SafetyWing (best for everyone)
  • Insure My Trip (for those 70 and over)
  • Medjet (for additional evacuation coverage)

Want to Travel for Free? Travel credit cards allow you to earn points that can be redeemed for free flights and accommodation — all without any extra spending. Check out my guide to picking the right card and my current favorites to get started and see the latest best deals.

Need Help Finding Activities for Your Trip? Get Your Guide is a huge online marketplace where you can find cool walking tours, fun excursions, skip-the-line tickets, private guides, and more.

Ready to Book Your Trip? Check out my resource page for the best companies to use when you travel. I list all the ones I use when I travel. They are the best in class and you can’t go wrong using them on your trip.

1. Nomadic Matt

Nomadic Matt

By:  Matthew Kepnes

I have to be honest with you — I love everything about  Nomadic Matt .  

Everything from his website’s design to his personal writing voice makes for an engaging reading experience. Not to mention that the name “Nomadic Matt” really sticks with me. 

Matthew Kepnes, AKA Nomadic Matt, was once a cubicle worker who admittedly wasn’t always a big traveler. On his first trip back in 2004, he went to Costa Rica where his perspective in life transformed forever. 

A single trip — that’s how easy it is to fall in love with travel. 

Today, Matthew continues living the life he was born for. He primarily blogs about travel tips, encompassing topics like how to save for a trip and things to do in Singapore. 

Blog Topics 

  • Travel Insurance
  • Travel planning
  • Saving money on travel
  • Travel gear
  • Destinations

Monetization Strategies

  • Display advertisements
  • Superstar Blogging online course
  • Affiliate marketing ( Check: Best Travel Affiliate Programs )

2. Backpacking Matt

Backpacking Matt

By:  Matt Kyhnn

I think there’s something about the name “Matt” that raises a person’s affinity for traveling. 

Backpacking Matt , owned and run by Matt Kyhnn, is a travel blog that has similar vibes with Nomadic Matt. It has a simplistic design, a memorable content tone, and striking travel photos that bring the blog’s stories to life. 

Matt Kyhnn also leverages videos — providing his audience a more immersive way to enjoy his content. 

Fresh out of college, Matt simply decided that he won’t settle for a 9-5 job. Instead, he spent months working and traveling across Ireland, Scotland, and other regions in mainland Europe. 

He then booked a one-way ticket to New Zealand where he now resides. In addition to his blog, Matt also runs his own travel planning and booking website — Planit NZ. 

Blog Topics

  • Affiliate marketing
  • Planit NZ travel planning and booking services
  • Brand collaborations

3. Adventurous Kate

Adventurous Kate

By:  Kate McCulley

Kate McCulley, AKA  Adventurous Kate , is a travel blogger with lots of adventures to tell.

She’s been to 83 countries, seven continents, and plenty of experiences to help women appreciate the traveling life. 

Kate’s blog was built during her time in Southeast Asia along with her freelance portfolio, which helped fund her travels. Her target audience is women who want to travel, but required guidance on how to do it safely and easily. 

The “Solo Female Travel” category on her blog consists of posts about travel safety, travel planning, destination guides, and more. She also compiled a list of travel resources that help turn her audience’s travel ideas into action plans. 

  • Travel safety for women
  • Sponsored posts

4. The Blonde Abroad

The Blonde Abroad

By:  Kiersten “Kiki” Rich

I covered Kiersten “Kiki” Rich of  The Blonde Abroad   in my list of the top lifestyle bloggers to follow in 2024. 

As her blog’s name suggests, she’s mainly a travel blogger who also discusses two other lifestyle-related topics — blogging and photography. 

Kiersten spent three, eye-opening months in multiple countries to re-envision the idea of “ success .” She succeeded in her goal and is now one of the most accomplished travel bloggers on the web. 

The Blonde Abroad covers a range of topics from travel photography to foreign cuisine. All of which draws wisdom from Kiersten’s personal travel experiences.

  • Photography
  • Travel destinations
  • The Travel Shop
  • Social media and influencer marketing consulting

5. California Through My Lens

California Through My Lens

By:  Josh McNair

Josh McNair, owner of  California Through My Lens , has a distinct writing style that vividly describes details of travel destinations. 

Unlike bloggers who discovered the love for travel in their adulthood, Josh has always been a passionate traveler at heart. He created California Through My Lens to document his adventures with the online audience. 

California Through My Lens is run by both Josh and his wife, Amy. The pair also has an active YouTube channel called Through My Lens where they share their experiences in video form. 

As you may have guessed, Josh’s content focuses on the beaches, caves, hiking trails, waterfalls, and various landmarks in California. Intricate details of each location, from hike distances to specific travel tips, are often included in his posts. 

  • National parks in California
  • Driving around California
  • California destinations
  • Selling eBooks
  • Advertisements through YouTube 

6. Dan Flying Solo

Dan Flying Solo

By:  Daniel “Dan” Clarke

Dan Flying Solo   is by Daniel Clarke — a travel blogger, photographer, and creative director at his own Portugal-based media company. 

Dan’s blogging life was ignited by his passion for photography. He was originally a frustrated restaurant manager who wanted more out of life.

Like me, Dan is a self-taught blogger. He worked day in and day out by doing free online courses, YouTube tutorials, and heaps of informative guides. 

What makes Dan Flying Solo an extra noteworthy blog is its library of video content. Daniel also makes it clear that the site has no particular theme — not unlike everything else in life.  

“ There’s not one particular theme to this blog because I don’t think that’s how life really is. We change and what we enjoy changes.”

7. Travel with Lakshmi

Travel with Lakshmi

By:  Lakshmi Sharath

Lakshmi Sharath worked on a desk job for multiple media organizations for 15 years. She then started her personal travel blog in 2005 — traveling to over 25 countries and across every corner of India. 

Travel with Lakshmi has only grown steadily ever since. It won multiple awards, including “India’s best travel blog of the year” award from Indiebloggie.  

As an Indian herself, Lakshmi made sure to highlight the country’s top travel destinations on the blog. She also documented her travels to foreign countries — from Abu Dhabi to the United Kingdom. 

As a way to support aspiring travelers around the world, Lakshmi also covers important tips on starting a travel blog. This includes essential tips on photography, travel planning, and travel writing.

  • Social media marketing campaigns
  • Content marketing and writing services
  • Digital media consulting services

8. foXnoMad

foXnoMad

By:  Anil Polat

foXnoMad   is a unique travel blog run by digital nomad Anil Polat.

Anil was exposed to travel at a young age because his parents were journalists. Other than routine trips between Turkey and the United States, they also visited multiple destinations around the world. 

Even in his professional life as a computer security consultant, travel was a big part of Anil’s life. He eventually decided to quit his job and fixate on one goal: to visit every country in the world.

What makes foXnoMad unique is that Anil utilizes his knowledge in tech to provide insightful tips on traveling smartly. He also develops apps that can help travelers in situations like determining water drinkability and calculating tips.

You can check out his podcast where he talks about current events, new product tech releases, and all things travel-related.

11. Alex in Wanderland 

Alex in Wanderland

By:  Alexandra Baackes

Alexandra Baackes created  Alex in Wanderland   for two reasons. 

First, she’s been dealing with a case of wanderlust all her life. And second, she’s a fan of a beloved, fictional character — Alice in Wonderland. 

Alexandra is originally from Brooklyn, New York where she purchased her one-way ticket into the traveling life. She now blogs about the best travel destinations, outdoor activities, and her personal, travel-related gear.

One of the things I like about Alex in Wanderland is the presentation and categorization of content. 

On the “Categories” page, Alex makes sure articles are well-organized based on topics like travel inspiration, activities, and planning. This makes it easy for her audience to find the information they need at any given time.

13. I Am Aileen

I Am Aileen

Just like Kiersten Rich, Aileen Adalid is another travel blogger whom I also featured in my top lifestyle blogs listicle.

Aileen runs  I Am Aileen   — an award-winning blog that discusses just about everything there is to discuss in travel. She writes about destinations, the best travel activities, foreign cuisine, and more. 

What interested me the most about Aileen is her blogging background. At age 21, she quit her corporate job, which only paid $300 a month, to become a professional traveler. 

Since then, she’s been on a streak of smashing goals and breaking barriers. Thanks to her commitment to quality content, she’s recognized as one of the top bloggers in Asia.

14. Wandering Earl

Wandering Earl

By:  Derek Earl Baron

Here’s a fun trivia about  Wandering Earl . 

Unlike most bloggers who use their first names, the “Earl” in “Wandering Earl” is actually a middle name. Blog owner Derek Earl Baron only thought that “Wandering Derek” didn’t sound as catchy.

Derek is a one-of-a-kind, adventurous soul who discovered his purpose as a modern nomad relatively early into adulthood. After graduating in 1999, he planned a three-month vacation across Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. 

That three-month vacation continues to this very day. 

And that’s how Wandering Earl was created — documenting Derek’s adventures in over 100 countries. He also shares valuable pieces of wisdom on travel planning, food, budgeting, gear, and so on. 

Wandering Earl has that “old-school” look and feel to it. On the plus side, the site’s design only highlights 

  • Working while traveling
  • Selling “eGuides”

15. Be My Travel Muse

Be My Travel Muse

By:  Kristin Addis

Be My Travel Muse  is a solo female travel blog created by Kristin Addis. 

She studied in Taiwan and kept an investment banking job for four years. The only problem was, her daily routine rendered her creative, dreamer side claustrophobic. 

Her first step was a one-way ticket to Bangkok — envisioning a life of writing and travel. That’s exactly what she accomplished with her blog, which now caters to millions of readers all over the world. 

Kristin believes that solo traveling is the best way for women to feel empowered and more confident. She prioritizes solo female travel tips on her blog, including guides on safety, packing, and maintaining relationships.

16. Followtheboat

Followtheboat

By:  Liz Cleere and Jamie Furlong

Followtheboat   is a unique travel blog that focuses on a specific mode of transport: sailing. 

It is created with love by a travel writer Liz Cleere and photographer Jamie Furlong. There’s also Millie the rescue cat, which functions as a source of inspiration and encouragement for the blog’s human founders. 

Despite the focus on sailboats, Followtheboat’s content isn’t just made for sailors. The posts are tailor-made for travelers who also happen to be interested in the art and joys of sailing. 

Don’t be surprised at the humor and dynamic range of topics on the blog. You’ll find posts like “tools you need on a sailboat” and “is this the weirdest loo in the world?”

Followtheboat also has a library of podcasts, which record Liz and Jamie’s experiences on their travels.

17. Matthew Woodward

Matthew Woodward

By:  Matthew Woodward

If Followtheboat is about boats, you can probably guess what  Matthew Woodward   is a blog about trains. 

Not to be mistaken for  Matthew Woodward  the internet marketer, Matthew Woodward the rail adventurer loved trains as a child. He owned model railway sets, traveled alone by train, and watched shows about trains on TV. 

In his time as a geography student, he explored Europe with his trusty Interrail pass. He set his passion aside to focus on his career, which he eventually gave up to become a travel writer. 

Today, he blogs about railway systems over different continents. He’s also an accomplished author of three books: “The Railway to Heaven,” “A Bridge Even Further,” and “Trans-Siberian Adventures.”

18. The Opposite Travellers

The Opposite Travellers

By:  Ryan and Rachel Riel

The Opposite Travellers   were created by married couple Ryan and Rachel Riel. 

While both loved to travel, Ryan and Rachel had contrasting preferences when it comes to traveling. 

Rachel prefers to travel in style and luxury — through the accommodations and services offered by establishments and travel agencies. Ryan, on the other hand, leans toward daring adventures like biking and trekking — on $5 per night accommodations. 

The couple, however, utilized their differences as a selling point in The Opposite Travellers. 

As such, the website’s “Travel” section has two main categories: “Luxury Travel” and “Adventure Travel.” In other words, the blog has a diverse content library for travelers of all tastes and budgets.

The Opposite Travellers also boasts high-quality visuals taken and produced by Ryan Riel. All of the site’s videos are published on Ryan Riel Media — Ryan’s official YouTube channel.

20. Bucket List Journey

Bucket List Journey

By:  Annette White

Travel is all about adventures, and so is life. 

That’s the essence of the  Bucket List Journey   by Annette White. 

The blog’s tagline is “tools and inspiration to live your list.” It refers to a person’s “bucket list,” which is basically a list of goals and experiences they want in life. 

Annette didn’t always have such a positive outlook in life. She used to be diagnosed with anxiety, which caused her to miss out on life-enriching experiences and opportunities. 

Eventually, she decided that she’ll no longer become a prisoner of fear and uncertainty. She had courage and took charge of her life’s direction — something every aspiring blogger needs to do at one point. 

Bucket List Journey talks about bucket list-worthy destinations, motivation, money, and travel tips. Annette also imparts knowledge on people who also struggle with facing fear and making braver life decisions.

21. Migrationology

Migrationology

By:  Mark Wiens

When I first visited  Migrationology , I wasn’t sure whether to classify it as a food or travel blog. 

Then I checked out Mark Wiens’s “About” page. There, I learned that he viewed food as a way to connect with people in various cultures. 

And to be exposed to these cultures, Mark dedicates his time, money, and efforts to travel. 

Mark makes sure the blog only focuses on content based on his personal travels. It’s made for people who want to experience the flavors of the world — in person or through Mark’s posts. 

Apart from general food travel blog posts and city guides, Migrationology also offers readers a “Food Tour” service. It is the result of a year of research done by Mark himself — in partnership with  Bangkok Vanguards .

22. The Cranky Flier

The Cranky Flier

By:  Brett Snyder

Cranky Flier   is a unique blog created by Brett Snyder — President and “Chief Airline Dork” of Cranky Flier LLC. 

Brett has been fascinated with airlines all his life. When he was young, he collected airline timetables and even spent a birthday with his grandmother watching planes land.

Today, Brett publishes his opinions about the airline industry on Cranky Flier. He also updates several series, like “Worst Airline Ever,” “Airlines We Lost,” and “Across the Aisle Interviews.” 

I’ll let you determine what these series are all about based on what they’re called.

23. Never Ending Footsteps

Never Ending Footsteps

By:  Lauren Juliff

Lauren Juliff is one of those bloggers who already knew what they wanted to be from an early age. 

She dreamt of traveling to new places, meeting new people, and exploring new cultures.  Never Ending Footsteps   is proof that she accomplished all three. 

The blog consists of posts about Lauren’s fulfilling travels to different countries. But unlike a lot of famous travel bloggers, she also talks about the downsides of being a digital nomad.

Never Ending Footsteps has a “The Incidents” blog section where Lauren discusses the not-so-sexy aspects of traveling. She has been scammed, attacked by monkeys, locked out of her room, lost her passport, and more. 

Despite these incidents, Lauren’s love for travel only grew. Such experiences increased her wisdom and travel acumen — resulting in some of the most insightful travel articles ever published.

Against The Compass

By:  Joan Torres

How do you make a travel blog stand out?

Joan Torres has a surefire answer: covering the most unusual and “off the beaten track” destinations.

Against The Compass   is a unique blog that talks about the travel routes and destinations you probably haven’t heard of. It covers destinations that people don’t normally include in their bucket list, like Pakistan, Tunisia, Syria, and other high-risk countries.

26. Everything Everywhere 

Everything Everywhere

By:  Gary Arndt

In travel blogging, a picture is undeniably worth a thousand words. There’s simply no excuse for any travel blogger to forego the inclusion of visual content in their posts.

Gary Arndt’s absolutely nailed it with his photography work for  Everything Everywhere .

Gary actually won multiple, major travel photography awards — more than any travel photographer. His photography is so good that I suggest you check the “Travel Photos” page on Everything Everywhere.

Go ahead, take a break and thank me later. 

Other than taking breathtaking photos, Gary also publishes detailed blog posts about the places he’s been. He’s been on the go for roughly 9 years non-stop, which means readers will never run out of material.

The Longest Way Home

By:  David Ways

The blog originally started as David’s private, digital diary. As he journeyed across Europe and gained experience, it turned into a full-on blog with travel guides to specific locations. 

David finally found home in Nepal before traveling to other parts of Southeast Asia. 

He’s not the most nitpicky blogger in terms of grammar and spelling, but he’s definitely a brilliant storyteller. He’s also skilled in capturing and immortalizing moments into photos, which you can view on his blog’s gallery. 

The Longest Way Home has a library of content about various destinations, trekking, and travel planning. It also features in-depth travel guides to Nepal, Thailand, and overland travel — plus a mini-guide to Portugal.

  • Personal opinions
  • Social media marketing

32. The Adventurists

The Adventurists

By:  Tom Morgan

The Adventurists   is hands down one of the most well-designed travel blogs in this post. 

The blog proves that integrating tons of video content into one page doesn’t have to affect its loading speed. In fact, the site loads surprisingly fast despite having several video panels on the homepage.

I’m not going to delve too deeply into this technical feat. What I’m going to focus on, however, is the brilliant team behind The Adventurists. 

The site is founded by “Chief Idiot” — Tom Morgan. Apparently, most of the crazy ideas featured on the blog were his. 

Every page on the site reflects Morgan and his team’s wackiness and passion for great adventures. They do, host, and document daring outdoor activities on air, land, and sea — plus, a whole lot of charity.

Their audience can also participate in these activities, which can be held in various parts of the globe. The “Monkey Run,” for example, is an event where participants race through dirt trails on tiny bikes.

The bottom line is, it’s hard to come up with unique ideas that set you apart in the blogging landscape. The Adventurists, on the other hand, managed to do so multiple times. 

  • “The Adventures” events
  • The “Shop of Stuff”

33. Time Travel Turtle

34. Hand Luggage Only

Hand Luggage Only

By:  Yaya and Lloyd

Hand Luggage Only   is a hugely successful travel blog by couple Yaya and Lloyd. 

The site doles out travel advice, inspiration, photography tips, food reviews, and posts about must-see destinations. It also has a library of high-quality videos where Yaya and Lloyd describe their experiences in detail.  

Yaya and Lloyd started the blog in 2014 with a plan to share their travel stories with the world. Within a few hours, they published their first posts using photos they already took and edited. 

The moral of the story is, consider starting a blog if you already have a library of unused travel photos. 

35. Travel4Wildlife

Travel4Wildlife

By:  Christina Garcia and Hal Brindley 

It should only take anyone a second to figure out what  Travel4Wildlife   is all about. 

The blog is created by couple Christina Garcia and Hal Brindley out of their passion for wildlife.

38. Uncornered Market

Uncornered Market

By:  Daniel Noll and Audrey Scott

Dan Noll and Audrey Scott are a pair of adventurers, storytellers, and tourism advisors who advocate for responsible traveling. 

They created  Uncornered Market   — a responsible tourism blog — after leaving their secure and stable lifestyle in Prague. Prior to that, they lived in San Francisco and took a leap of faith for the sake of avoiding regrets.

39. Jessie on a Journey

Jessie on a Journey

By:  Jessica “Jessie” Festa

Like plenty of bloggers, Jessica Festa needed a taste of life before discovering her true calling. 

In her youth, Jessie traveled to mostly cruises in the Caribbean and road trips in North America. She also experienced being a sightseeing guide in New York. 

Jessie on a Journey   is the result of her pursuing her dreams of getting paid to do something she loves. She now blogs about being a solo female traveler, blogging it, and profiting off of it. 

I’m sure a lot of big-name bloggers are all too familiar with how Jessie made the blogging vision a reality.

For a long time, she felt that the workaday lifestyle isn’t for her. It made her feel like she’s living everyone else’s life — not the kind of life she wanted to keep. 

Despite the disapproval of loved ones, Jessie decided to quit her secure job in favor of being a travel blogger. 

She was just as unprepared as most people before starting their own blog. The key difference is, she went out there and took her first step.

40. Legal Nomads

Legal Nomads

By:  Jodi Ettenberg

Back when Jodi Ettenberg was in law school, she never would’ve guessed she’d run a successful travel and food business. 

That happens to a lot of people, especially those who never thought of giving priority to their passions. 

It’s just a hunch, but I think the name  Legal Nomads   had something to do with Jodi’s background in law. 

Legal Nomads highlights destinations and local cultures just as insightfully as other travel blogs. What makes it different is that Jodi focuses on local cuisines to experience and tell the stories of each destination. 

A huge part of Jodi’s blog is about wellness and gluten-free eating. She then utilized her knowledge and experience to create detailed restaurant cards, which travelers can use when visiting certain countries. 

  • Gluten-free restaurant cards
  • The Legal Nomads Shop

41. Indiana Jo

Indiana Jo

By:  Jo Fitzsimons

Like Jodi Ettenberg, Jo Fitzsimons also used to practice law before becoming a successful travel and lifestyle writer. 

Indiana Jo   started way back in 2010 where Jo can comfortably type away her thoughts and musings. Fed up with her full-time job, she went out to see the world as a digital nomad.

It wasn’t always smooth sailing for Indiana Jo, however. According to her, she thought about quitting the blog several times before finally realizing that it’s a lifetime thing. 

Jo writes about her travel experiences, destinations, wine, and food. She also shares travel planning tips along with a long list of content about topics that personally interest her. 

  • Travel health and safety

42. TravelFreak

TravelFreak

By:  Jeremy Scott Foster

TravelFreak   is the brainchild of Jeremy Scott Foster who left America in the middle of a recession and to Australia. 

For a while, he racked up some savings as a traveling bartender. It took some time before he finally made the switch to be a digital nomad and online entrepreneur. 

Jeremy created the blog to help people create opportunities to achieve the fulfilling life they deserve. 

He writes about travel advice, destinations, gear, and ways to get your finances in order as you travel. This includes guides on how to land and keep a job abroad along with resources on reliable booking websites. 

I personally like the way Jeremy designed TravelFreak to provide the best possible user experience. Unlike a traditional layout, the site features a search bar so readers can jump right into the content they need.

TravelFreak has been featured in Forbes, National Geographic, The New York Times, and a few other big-name publications.

Images are accompanied by a brief article that describes the destination’s history and Pauline’s thoughts and emotions during her visit. I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something about this content format that’s truly engaging and relaxing.

48. Amateur Traveler

Amateur Traveler

By:  Chris Christensen

Don’t be fooled by the name —  Amateur Traveler   is by no means run by an amateur.

Chris Christensen is a skilled photographer, travel writer, and podcast host. The site also utilizes a long list of monetization strategies that I believe every blogger should learn. 

True, he wasn’t the most experienced traveler when he started the blog. Before he created Amateur Traveler, he was a full-time EVP of engineering and operations for a company based in Silicon Valley. 

In his defense, he grew up in a family that traveled a lot to national parks in a trailer. He also learned a lot of foreign languages, which he believes is a window into understanding and embracing different cultures. 

Amateur Traveler discusses destinations, travel budgeting, planning, gear, and booking. The site also features a weekly podcast on the top destinations around the world.

49. Girl Eat World

Girl Eat World

By:  Melissa Hie

Melissa Hie is the “Girl” in  Girl Eat World  — a name that encapsulates what the whole blog is all about. 

You see, Melissa’s three passions are food, travel, and storytelling. She started the blog in 2015 as a digital diary for herself and friends who need travel tips. 

Prior to her blog’s success, she amassed quite a following on Instagram. This springboarded her blogging career, which she put in the back burner after focusing on her full-time career.

Girl Eat World is essentially a compendium of Melissa’s travel stories and travel planning guides. She also has an iconic style of capturing Instagram posts, which must be seen to be appreciated. 

50. The Adventure Junkies

The Adventure Junkies

By:  Antonio Cala and Amanda Zeisset

The Adventure Junkies   is definitely not your average travel blog. 

It’s not just about the travel stories of founders Antonio Cala and Amanda Zeisset. Upon visiting the blog for the first time, you’ll realize that it’s all about the community the blog has built. 

New visitors are encouraged to join “ Summit ” — a free community for people who seek adventures through travel and outdoor activities. There, members can connect, plan events, share posts, ask questions, form groups, and discuss anything related to travel. 

The Adventure Junkies also compile guides and resources about outdoor activities like diving, kayaking, mountain biking, and snowboarding. There’s also a section for visitors who’d like to learn about outdoor and underwater photography.

Antonio and Amanda started The Adventure Junkies as a personal blog about their three years of cycling. Over time, their readers began asking questions on how they can plan their own adventures. 

The couple then realized that they need to create something more than a personal blog. As such, they transformed The Adventure Junkies as a one-stop shop for adventurists.

51. A Broken Backpack Travel Blog

A Broken Backpack

By:  Melissa Giroux

Melissa Giroux used to be a social worker who only traveled once a year. 

Melissa created  A Broken Backpack   a year after her journey in the Canadian Rockies — hitch-hiking from point A to B. She continued working on her blog as a creative outlet while working on a farm in Australia. 

It didn’t take long before A Broken Backpack’s popularity gained momentum and gave Melissa a new frontier. 

The website contains crucial tips on travel gear, budgeting, destinations, and the life of a digital nomad. Melissa also put together in-depth guides on travel blogging, moving to another country as an expat, and backpacking.

52. The World Travel Guy

By : David Leiter

David Leiter is an American travel blogger currently based in Bali, Indonesia, with his wife Intan (who’s a Bali local).

They travel around the world and try to document the most scenic destinations by creating articles, photos, videos, and guides for other travelers.

David runs  The World Travel Guy , an adventure travel blog that he started when he was a solo traveler, but now covers their travels around the globe as a couple.

In total, they’ve visited dozens of countries, while also checking off some bucket list adventures like a Komodo dragon safari in Indonesia, the Mount Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal, and a bunch of world monuments like the Angkor Wat and Taj Mahal.

53. Life Part 2

Life Part 2

By:  Jonathan Look Jr. and Sarah Wilson

The last blog on this list that your best life can start at any time you choose. 

Let me tell you the story behind  Life Part 2   and the people behind it.

Jonathan Look Jr. and Sarah Wilson are both happy retirees with a simple mantra: “don’t waste your retirement.”

To them, retirement isn’t about being comfortable and secure. Rather, it’s all about the freedom to listen to your heart and follow where it takes you. 

Jonathan and Sarah met in Chiang Mai, Thailand where they both agreed to see the world as a couple. 

Life Part 2 is a mix of all things travel. At times, there’ll be a post about remote destinations and backpacking, and at other times, the theme is luxury travel. 

You will, however, notice that the content topics on the blog often revolve around retirement, minimalism, and travel. 

Planning to go on your own travel adventures? Perhaps you’re thinking of starting your very own travel blog?

It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a case of wanderlust or the desire to be a travel blogger yourself. 

The list above has some of the best travel blogs ever created. They can provide you with ideas and inspiration for your next trip or first-ever travel blog post. 

If you think I missed a great travel blog that everyone should read, let me know in the comments below. Good luck!

Travel Blogs You Should Be Reading

Travel , Travel Inspiration & Tips | November 5, 2015

There are countless lists out there featuring the best travel blogs. Here’s my contribution. These travel blogs are the ones I think every world-hungry, money-weary twenty something should be reading.

Some of the travel bloggers featured on this list are relatively new, or not getting the attention they deserve, in my humble opinion. Others are well established and if you haven’t already heard of them, you’ve clearly been hiding in a rock or (the horror!), been on some kind of weird  digital detox  for the past year. Some of them blog about luxury experiences we can only dream of, others share their honest travel hacks and itineraries to help their readers attain the same lifestyle. They all share guides, advice and anecdotes that make their loyal readers smile.

I love travel blogs. They entertain, they inspire and they fuel my everlasting wanderlust. I love travel bloggers even more. They’re the ones with the biggest smiles, biggest hearts and biggest cameras. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of the people on this list, and one thing I’m always struck by is the openness and kindness that exists in the travel community. Whether it’s in a hostel or on the road, people who travel are definitely the best kind of people!

My favourite travel blogs

  • Lucy’SmilesAway

Lucy really does smile away – and she usually is miles away. I was lucky enough to meet her at a blogging event in Leeds, and she’s one of those people you want to be best mates with straight away. I went home and read her blog, and quickly realised that this girl is everywhere at the minute. She wrote a post about some creep w*nking at her in India and it went viral, showing how a female’s wrath will always bring us out on top. I’m not sure I’ll ever visit India, so I enjoy travelling vicariously through her stories. Give her website a read and see what else she’s up to!

Lucy Smiles Away

2. Hippie In Heels

I didn’t know glamorous travel in India was possible until I discovered Rachel’s blog. For her, it’s all about balance. She describes herself as ‘one part dirty hippie, one part girlie girl’, which I reckon any gal with a backpack can identify with. She’s a big believer in working six months to travel the other six, which is just the dream really, isn’t it?

Best travel bloggers - Rachell

3. The Travel Hack

Monica Scott is the awe-inspiring woman behind The Travel Hack, one of the UK’s top 10 travel blogs. Proving that slumming it in a hostel isn’t the only way to have an adventure, she built a bit of an empire with her luxury travel website and now has a crew of jet-setting writers. She breaks the mold by travelling with her two babies, showing us that travel and ‘settling’ aren’t completely at odds with each other.

4. GirlvsGlobe

Sabina uses GirlvsGlobe as a progress report in her quest to make the world her home, and I use it as a source of inspiration. She’s doing well in her aims so far, and aside from bubbly posts like ’99 things to do instead of growing up’, she’s also using the platform she’s built to promote social change. Sabina took part in a #EYD2015 project series where she teamed up with the European Commission to embark on a whirlwind trip around the world, to expose what life is like in different countries. This girl is unstoppable!

Girl vs globe

5. Just One Way Ticket

Sabrina is from Berlin and has been embracing travel as a lifestyle since 2008. Quite an achievement! The Philippines is her specialty but she’s also blogged her way around Europe, Maldives, Bali… the list is endless. Oh, and she isn’t shy about sharing how she manages it, with posts with titles like ‘8 Steps to Freedom: How I quit my job and traveled around the world’. #Goals.

Just One Way Ticket

6. Nomadic Boys

Stefan and Sebastian are two self-confessed ‘greedy gayboys’ travelling the world. Literally every social media update seems to be a picture of one of them tucking into a big plate of noodles or some other cultural delicacy! They left London in June 2014 and are basically living the dream, eating their way around Asia indefinitely. The lads use food and big smiles to transcend language barriers. They blog about the gay scenes they encounter wherever they go.

Nomadic Boys

7. The Hungry Partier

Drew is from Arizona and was bitten by the travel bug during his year studying in Prague. He used the year to travel to over 20 European countries… and then just kept going. He taught English in Seoul and travelled much of Asia. Now, he’s visited over 250 cities and partied in every single one of them. A guy after my own heart! What’s great about Drew’s website is that he inspires you to get out of your comfort zone and live your best life – wherever that journey may take you.

Drew from Hungry Partier

8. along dusty roads

This website will definitely make you want to travel in Latin America. The couple, Andrew and Emily, write guides and share photojournals of their ‘slow travel’ around Central and South America. Their philosophy involves actually taking the time to really experience the culture they find themselves in, which means their blog isn’t all tourist hot spots and rammed itineraries. They aim to live on around £15 each to show that budget travel is completely doable and every bit as incredible. Love on the road, embodied.

along dusty roads travel bloggers

9. Girl Tweets World

Jayne Gorman has moved from London to Sydney and writes about books, blogging, street art & sweet treats – all of my favourite things! She’s an accidental travel blogger, having studied law then started a social media business, which is the money maker for many a digital nomad. Yes, Jayne turned her hobby into a career. She’s already achieved her goal of blogging about 40 countries before she turned 30, and she celebrated in Thailand. Oh, and she once won Cosmo’s Best Travel Blog, so I think we should all listen to her! She’s been doing this for over five years and shows no signs of slowing down.

10. The Aussie Flashpacker

Simone and Dan are the ultimate travelling couple. She’s Australian, he’s English and they met while travelling in South America – can you think of a better love story? They’re a bit fancy and write about luxury travel experiences, which makes for some drool-worthy posts. That’s not to say these two aren’t up for roughing it now and then though. Whether they’re horseback riding in Bolivia or reviewing the ‘most seductive lodge on the planet’ in South Africa; the flashpackers will be sharing their adventures.

Grief Is for People by Sloane Crosley

Grief is not prescriptive. If there’s one thing you can take away from Grief Is for People , let it be that. Sloane Crosley’s new memoir is a deeply incisive and moving account of working through cumulative grief or grief overload—the kind associated with multiple losses in quick succession. Faced with a home break-in (during which she loses her family jewelry) and subsequently, the death of her friend and mentor by suicide, Crosley finds herself on a continuum of grief, during which this sequence of events that have nothing to do with each other mutate into a single event of profound stress. In fact, the title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to exactly that—the writer’s tendency to conflate her grief over her friend with the loss of her jewelry, an attempt at anthropomorphizing objects, if you will. Even in this morass of sadness and confusion, Crosley’s trademark wit, seen previously in her humorous essays, is on display—this book is both very poignant and darkly funny. And it smashes through any facile frameworks we have available for mourning. — Arati Menon , global digital director

Worry by Alexandra Tanner

The back cover of Alexandra Tanner’s Worry likens it to both Greta Gerwig’s “Frances Ha” and Seinfeld—a compelling start for a debut novel from the Brooklyn-based writer. Over a quick-reading 291 pages, the daily thoughts, anxieties, and indulgences of two sisters who are living together in New York City unfold through witty dialogue loaded with familiar pop culture references. Reading this feels a lot like hanging out with a sister, something I reflected on while carrying it to Mexico City for my little sister’s wedding. We’re hardly the same as Poppy and Jules, the two main characters, but I understand the dynamics at play here—it’s a bit like looking in a fun house mirror at times, sometimes to my horror, but always to my entertainment. — Megan Spurrell , senior editor

Funny Story by Emily Henry

If you're even slightly into romance novels, you're probably familiar with Emily Henry, a New York Times best-selling author (and Women Who Travel Power Listee ) known for her popular books like People We Meet on Vacation and Beach Read . Anticipating all the same feel-good magic in whatever Henry writes next, I couldn't wait to devour her latest novel, Funny Story . It follows a young woman named Daphne whose fiancé realizes he's in love with someone else—his childhood best friend, Petra. Daphne, now heartbroken and strapped for money, moves in with none other than Petra's ex-boyfriend, Miles. The unlikely pair of roommates, both grieving their own relationships, develop somewhat of an interesting friendship. It's humorous, playful, and has all the right ingredients for a good ole' love story. — Meaghan Kenny , associate commerce editor

Good Material by Dolly Alderton

I recently sped through Good Material , Dolly Alderton ’s second novel and fourth book, while on a trip to Mexico City . As with her previous work, the book explores themes of love, friendship, and the role of technology in our lives and relationships with a searing specificity. This story, told from the perspective of a flailing standup comedian who’s stuck in the proverbial restaurant of his former relationship, gets into the agonizing days and months following a breakup, and surfaces every embarrassing emotion that comes with it. At times, I wanted to shake the narrator silly, but I appreciated the fact that Alderton didn’t try and make him overly likable. The tone is warm, funny, and all too relatable. — Madison Flager , senior commerce editor

I’lll Just Be Five More Minutes: And Other Tales from My ADHD Brain by Emily Farris

I've been reading I'll Just Be Five More Minutes: And Other Tales from My ADHD Brain by Emily Farris , a senior commerce writer at Bon Appétit and Epicurious . I'm a longtime fan of Farris—her irreverent humor, her amazing sense of colorful design, and how she writes from the heart. She takes us on a journey through her life as experienced by someone with ADHD , and while I don't have ADHD, there are plenty of relatable tidbits (like the one about wanting to mail out those holiday cards a year late? Been there!) that make you laugh, cry, and cringe. It's not a topic talked about often and I appreciate Farris for putting it all out there. — Lia Picard , contributor

How to Be Old: Lessons in Living Boldly from the Accidental Icon by Lyn Slater

I am currently devouring Lyn Slater’s debut book, How To Be Old: Lessons in Living Boldly from the Accidental Icon, which details the decade of her 60s, how she became famous, and what spurred the reinvention taking place in her 70s. I myself have just entered into a new decade, and am about to become a mom. When I spoke to her recently about the book , I told her how much the material resonated with me. She told me that she actually wrote this book for people like me, in the midst of transition. “My message is that, instead of being fearful about being older, it's an opportunity to really take that dream that you might have put aside because of life, and making a living, and children, and really getting to a time of life where you can have that dream, if you want it.” — Mercedes Bleth , global associate director, social media

The Stone Home by Crystal Hana Kim

I’ve been reading a lot of fiction lately that deals with less widely-known parts of Asian history. Among the best of them is Kim’s riveting sophomore novel, which begins in 2011. The story opens with Eunju Oh in her Daegu, South Korea apartment, getting an unexpected visit from Narae, a woman who was raised by her childhood nemesis Sangchul Kim. Sangchul has recently died and directed Narae to Eunju to learn the truth about her origins. What follows is an account from both teenaged Eunju and Sangchul’s perspectives of their year in the Stone Home, purportedly a government-run reformatory for wayward citizens that was actually a camp where innocent civilians were kidnapped and forced to labor under grueling conditions, their wares sold abroad.

The book is tightly written and moves at a thrilling pace. You really feel for the characters and understand their motivations. Kim chronicles Eunju’s time in the camp’s kitchen with her mother, whom she calls Umma, and a disparate group of women who come to care for one another. While men usually toil in the workshops, Eunju and her friend Mina are chosen to work threading fish hooks with a group of boys that include Sangchul and his older brother, Youngchul. The main plot begins after Youngchul meets with tragedy, and Sangchul betrays his friends by becoming a brutal Keeper, a peer enforcer for the camp’s sadistic leaders. Kim’s writing is thoroughly engaging while also managing to educate readers regarding a brutal atrocity in Korea’s timeline. — Alexandra Sanidad , research director

Friends in Napa by Sheila Yasmin Marikar

I loved Sheila Marikar's debut novel Goddess Effect so much that I raved about it in last year's spring book club . So when I heard she had a juicy follow up, Friends in Napa , in the works, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. If you love tales of insufferable wealthy people in beautiful environs, a la Succession and The White Lotus (and who doesn't), this is the perfect premise: A group of college friends-turned-frenemies reunites in a scenic California wine country estate, where drama—and murder—ensues. After getting immediately hooked on the riveting opening scene that takes you inside the mind of a murderer, I'm now racing through the chapters brimming with grudges and grapes to figure out whodunnit. — Sarah Khan , contributor

No Judgment: On Being Critical Lauren Oyler

Fans of Lauren Oyler likely became so, as I did, because of her criticism, which is rather mean (never undeservedly!) and as a result, very funny. A follow-up to a debut novel that was received with a poetic panning of its own ( Fake Accounts, not as bad as you’ve heard), No Judgement is a collection of six essays musing largely on criticism’s very existence—how it is generally good for the culture, how apps like Goodreads in turn make it bad for the culture, and most of all criticism’s inevitability in every sphere of human behavior. The collection’s introduction opens with a modicum of truth: That when somebody tells you, “No judgement,” as a way to encourage honesty or reward it, that somebody is lying. They are not not judging you, but rather keeping said judgement to themselves. Quite simply, judgement is as human as it is involuntary. There’s also a good essay about living in Berlin that everybody should read, if nothing else. That’s the beauty of a book of essays. — Charlie Hobbs , associate editor

Headshot by Rita Bullwinkle

If you've been following Caitlin Clark's historic college basketball career at the University of Iowa, then you know women's sports are really, truly, finally having a moment. But what motivates girls to compete? That’s a central question in Rita Bullwinkle’s debut novel Headshot , which follows eight teenagers as they face off in a single-elimination boxing tournament. Each chapter is a bout between two young women, with an emphasis on what’s going on inside their heads as they fight. I’m only a few chapters in, but already this book is about so much more than athletics—it’s an exploration of girlhood, insecurity, and grit that, even if you didn’t grow up playing sports, you’ll find relatable and compelling. — Sarah Kuta , contributor

Fruit of the Dead by Rachel Lyon

Every now and then, a book description with some of my most niche interests and lived experiences make me really excited to crack it open: This one got me with camp counselorhood, a visit to a billionaire's remote private island , and an allegory for the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter. (The goddess duo, legend has it, went toe to toe with Hades in a parable about the depth of mother-daughter connection.) It doesn't spoil any plot to say that author Rachel Lyon's modern Persephone is children’s sleep-away camp employee Cory, who soon introduces us to our Hades (the predatory father of a camper) and our Demeter (mother Emer), whose adjacent perspective of the plot is jumped to in nearly every other chapter for a she-said/she-said format.

The result makes for a page-turning, sometimes deus-ex-machina story; one that interweaves teenage naivety, motherly intuition, and male privilege for a fast-moving tale that might call into question your own hard lines on topics like addiction, consent, and exploitation. (Readers should know there's a trigger warning for sexual violence, although the topic is explored thoughtfully, and through the eyes of both jaded single mother and young, lost daughter.) The joining force between the two points of view is the villain, whose descriptions and character development are Cat Person -level from the beginning. My only wish is that mother Emer's character was more fully brought into sharper focus by the end of the book—but with so much going on between the perspective-jumping chapters and a climactic ending, you'll find yourself gobbling up the pages. — Shannon McMahon , destinations editor

Piglet by Lottie Hazell

Food isn’t an afterthought in this scrumptious novel, it’s one of (if not the ) main characters. Fittingly, I devoured it in a single sitting. Author Lottie Hazell has a creative writing PhD—her research considers food writing in twenty-first century fiction—and her expertise on the matter is immediately clear in the razor-sharp prose, spot-on character development, and propulsive plot. From the very first chapter, you know Piglet’s fiancé Kit has betrayed her somehow, but it’s not clear exactly what he did. Not knowing somehow makes it even more salacious; the tension becomes not the secret itself, but how it is so closely kept from everyone in the book—including the reader. (I won’t give away when/if you do eventually find out what happened.) As the plot thickens, you feel the weight of Kit’s unknown deed build up in your chest, screaming to be released, but wondering alongside Piglet if that would really make you feel any better. The result is a suspenseful, binge-worthy read that dives deep into womens’ appetites, in all its many forms. — Hannah Towey , associate editor, transportation and travel news

The Limits by Nell Freudenberger

I read this on a trip to Cusco, Peru —so, lightyears away from Tahiti and New York , the two settings for this beautiful book (also, thankfully, years later than the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic in which it takes place). Following the lives of a coral researcher in French Polynesia , her ex-husband who is a doctor in New York City, and their daughter who moves between the two of them with all of her teenage dramas, this story meditates on love, family, identity, and complex dynamics of class and colonization in both destinations. It inspired me to learn more about Tahitian culture (and convinced me I need to visit ASAP), and kept me riveted from start to finish. —M.S.

travel bloggers reading

Death Valley by Melissa Broder

At first glance, I had my apprehensions about beginning Melissa Broder’s Death Valley —as it is both fiction, and touches upon grief (I sway more towards non-fiction, and away from, well, grief). Immediately, though, Broder proves quirky and captivating—permitting us to accompany a woman’s solo expedition to California on a quest to reprieve the weight of loss of both her husband and father. Despite the Valley’s Best Western, though, the tale is opposite from bleak. Together, we head into a nearby desert trail and begin this existential, erotic, and treacherously real journey of self-discovery and resilience in the wake of “pending” grief. Whether conversing with unassuming cacti or vividly stark memories of her loved ones, Broder paints this hilarious fever dream, while still conveying a stark, tangible sense of what it means to be alive. All that to say, it’s still a great beach read. —J.C.

Travel Bloggers: What to Write and How to Write a Travel Blog in 2024 (50+ Tips)

“I want to start a travel blog, what do you think I should write about?”

True story.

I was a few drinks down at a London Travel Massive event and a lady unknown to me had just targeted me with the above. In fact, interrupting the conversation I was having midflow. Usually full of advice and happy to dish it out this question had me stumped, as much as her demeanour.

travel bloggers writing

There’s no sugar coating it: I really think you should have at least a few ideas of what you want to write about before you start even thinking about setting up a travel blog. If not a few fully written posts so you have some material to play around with when it comes to style and design.

Since then I’ve often been asked how to write a travel blog, and think back to this night. 

Travel Blogger High

Talking about the interaction with a close fellow travel blogger the next day we established that both of us had lists of at least tens of articles we wanted to write, but seeing as we both worked full time at that point, never had the time to see them through. Though I could always rely on a  professional essay writing service  to help me with the writing part, that’s something that I prefer to do myself.

You can’t win.

If you’re in ‘clueless Cathy’s’ camp above, and are stuck for what to write about on your travel blog, what you need is some travel blogging inspiration.

Take a look a the ideas below on what to write in a travel blog and think about which idea appeals to you most. Then, just get started! 

This is a pretty long post so if you’re all good for inspiration but need some advice on how to write travel blogs , click to go to the second half.

What to write in a travel blog: 10 ideas 

If you’re trying to work out what to write in a travel blog, here are 10 ideas for you. When it comes to travel blog writing you might just need a few ideas to start you off, and then the creative juices will start to flow and travel blog ideas will be flowing out of you. 

Use two or three of these to get you started writing your travel blog.

If you want to see a travel blog example, take a look around my blog, obviously – and also check out this list of the top 50 travel bloggers in the UK . If that doesn’t give you inspiration, I don’t know what will!

FAMIL RETREAT OASIS

1. Write about your first holiday

This is a good way to get started in blogging about travel. Tell your readers about your memories of your first holiday – I did this when I found some Euro Disney memorabilia when I was cleaning out my room. It was my first holiday abroad and I’d kept the sugar sachets from Disney for almost 20 years! Think about describing the way it affected all your senses to get you started. Are there particular sounds, smells and sights that take you back to that moment in time?

Take my advice, first printed in Wanderlust Magazine in Could You Write a Travel Blog?

“Before you decide on a name, platform or topic, take a deep breath and close your eyes,” says travel blogger Victoria Philpott. Vicky, who blogs alongside her day job, suggests wannabe bloggers start by conjuring up their happiest travel memory and letting the story flow.”

2. Write about your locale

Travel blogging

London is the number one travel destination in the world, if you live there you’ve got enough content to see you through for years. Find unique events, have a unique view and there you have your next article. And that’s just an example of my blogging gone wrong – I lived there for years, got to know a few neighbourhoods really well, but did I write about them? No. They’re straight on the never ending to do list.

I spent my first 18 years in a village in the Midlands called Barton-under-Needwood (pop. 5000). A quick Google search shows me that no one has written any sort of guide to things to do there. There’s a unique opportunity, especially as there are new developments in the area. This might not seem like the most exciting post if it’s covering somewhere you lived for so long but your insider knowledge is invaluable and someone, somewhere, will be interested.

You never know when world interest in any place could start to peak and you’d be all set up to be the go to person on that area.

Writing in a travel bullet journal is a great way to get started.

First travel blog post

Travel blog writing doesn’t have to be about exotic, faraway places, it can easily be your own neighbourhood. In fact, I find that a lot of travel bloggers who’ve been doing it as long as I have, have come back to England and decided to concentrate on writing their travel blogs about here, as it suddenly becomes so much more appealing.

3. Where shall I go on holiday next year?

Don’t answer me by saying , answer by writing in blogging about travel. Create a blog post with all the reasons you have to advise why I should go to a certain place on holiday. Another aspect of travel blogging is persuasive writing.

There are a few destinations I’ve been to that I’ve really, really loved and I want my readers to see them too. In writing about New York , Vietnam , Porto and now Tokyo I want to persuade my readers that they should go too.

If they like my blog I know they’ll like them, and a happy reader will come back for more.

Watch this little video of what to write about for more ideas…

4. Write about you

The juiciest posts are the most personal ones. They’re the ones I like to read to get to know the blogger I’m reading about. I admire people who can be so honestly open about life, people like Toni over handling mental, health and family issues while travelling and Planet D about how their travel blog saved their marriage .

Travel blog examples like these help you to see there are real person at the end of these blog posts – real people with real problems.

Me as a travel blogger

I find it very difficult to write posts like this. In fact there are only two on my blog: one about why I was going travelling when my boyfriend dumped me  and a dedication to my nan when she died, which I can’t read without crying as I’ve just proven to myself.

If you’re suffering from blogger’s block – bit like writer’s block – then this is the post for you.

5. Your thoughts on a destination

I really like writing about my impressions of a country once I’m back and have processed my thoughts, feelings and photos.

Posts like What Vietnam was Like For Me and What is Cuba Really Like? Busting the Tourist Myth may not be as instantly appealable as a quickie list post on the destination but writing them makes me happy.

I like to read back over them to remind me of how I felt when I was there as you can really use your experience and creativity in posts like this.

Lists are popular for a reason – they’re easy to read and quick to do. Whole websites have been created to just feature lists although they’re usually pretty flakey.

Outlandish titles like 11 Awesome Ways to Sneak Alcohol into Festivals will usually generate a few more views too – if audience figures are one of your travel blogging goals that is. Look at other bloggers’ travel blog examples for inspiration.

Travel blogging course

When I’m in a destination I’ll look for the best things to do there and it’ll be a list I’m after, not some think piece I mention above. So give your audience what they want and write a well-researched useful to do list.

7. What’s popular?

Some of the most popular topics on my blog are Vietnam and Glastonbury. I rank well for these in Google and I can see from my analytics that my readers keep coming back for more. Once you know that you have a popular topic or post on your blog it makes sense to keep creating more valuable content around it.

Someone once said to me: “Go the extra mile, it’s less crowded there”. Meaning, put the effort in, more than anyone else, and you will be rewarded. Or something along those lines anyway. 

You can link from your already popular posts and know that your readers will enjoy it. Take a look at the keywords they come in on on Google Analytics for inspiration on how to write more.

how to write travel blogs

8. What do you want to read?

When you’re looking for information on a destination make sure to note the questions you have and the answers you can’t find – then you know the gaps to fill when it comes to you writing up your trip. 

From my research and subsequent article on The Best Things to Do in Vietnam According to Travel Bloggers I found that no one had really done a guide to travelling around Vietnam, it was just all advice on particular aspects.

What to write about

It took me ages to plan that trip so I wrote up all my findings and now my Two Weeks in Vietnam Itinerary is the second most popular post on my blog. More importantly, it’s inspired loads of people to explore Vietnam by themselves, rather than book on expensive tours.

I’ll pat myself on the back there.

9. Go niche

Sometimes the nichest of niche things work well when you’re blogging about travel, as you’ll be answering very specific questions.

Another of the most popular articles on my blog is 9-Hour Stopover in Qatar: Is it Worth Exploring? Not something an average reader would be interested in but because it’s so specific and not many people have written about it, it does well in Google search and again, I’ve helped people decide on what to do in Qatar.

Insider, actual tried and tested travel knowledge, is what makes a travel blogger stand out over the average travel company.

10. Interviews

Interviews are a great way to get started if you need some inspiration. Don’t just look to other travel bloggers though – unless you’ve got an exclusive or they’ve got a really interesting story there are already so many about.

What is Papua New Guinea Like?

Instead, interview people from your travels and write a profile of them rather than just a Q and A. This will help you to get more of you in there as well as them. It also means it’s not just an email exchange but a well thought out background piece.

How to write a travel blog without travelling

Learning how to write travel blogs isn’t easy, and it may take a while for you to find your style. Stick with it, it’s fun!

As you’ll have just read in those examples, you don’t actually have to be travelling to write a travel blog. Interviews, lists, you, they all work if you don’t have the time and money to be constantly on the road. 

Look on the bright side – you have the opportunity to spend the time over your writing instead of rushing between destinations. If it was me, I’d pick a destination or theme, and stick steadfastly to that.   

If you’re good at budgeting, you can help people plan their budget for their next trip, for example. Topics about  finding cheap flights  or hotels are in high demand. You can do some research and cover these types of helpful topics on your travel blog.

Having a tight niche is another way to really stand out over the many, many other travel bloggers.

How to write a travel blog

Travel blogs examples to inspire your travel blog writing.

Once you have a few posts done and your fingertips are finding their way round that keyboard with rhythm start to think about the kind of writer you want to be. Think about how you want your travel blogging voice to develop, how you want readers to feel when they’re on your blog and what kind of topics you want to cover.

This is how you’ll start to gain a distinctive voice in the world of travel blogging – something that can be very difficult to do.

Travel blog examples

Here are a few travel bloggers, with travel blog writing examples, who really stand out to me for having been able to do this. When you’re writing for travel blogs, you can really make it your own, like these guys…

Becki Enright

Travel blogging what to write about

Becki from bordersofadventure.com writes serious travel blog about sides of countries your average traveller wouldn’t get to see.

She’s even been on Sky News discussing tourism in North Korea and regularly produces the kind of political posts you won’t see on any other blog.

  • Inside the ‘Den of Espionage’ – Getting Inside the former US Embassy in Tehran
  • Visiting the West Bank in Palestine – Understanding the Conflict from Both Jewish and Arab Perspectives in Hebron

Brenna Holeman

Travel blogging what to write about

Brenna from thisbatteredsuitcase.com creates beautifully written heartfelt stories about her life on the road.

She’s so open and powerful I enjoy reading her posts and know I can go to her site to be transported into her world.

Check out her travel blog for some major writing inspiration.

  • The Last Time I Saw You: London Edition
  • Being Happy with Being Content

Travel blogging what to write about

For another distinctive voice in the travel blogging world check out Dylan’s blog at thetravelingeditor.com. At a risk of sounding like an imbecile, he uses a lot of ‘big words’. He’s an eloquent sesquipedalian .  These posts are a good example of the tone and style of writing Dylan is known for.

  • The palatal awakening of Mercatino del Gusto
  • The thunderous convergence of Rotterdam Unlimited

How to write a unique travel blog

All three of these travel blogger examples are very different to what I aim to do on my blog. There may be some crossover in topics but the four of us have very different writing styles and I bet you could spot it if we wrote for each other.

When you’re writing a travel blog you should sound like you , be passionate about the things you’re passionate about, and relay in your own style. In that way you’ll stand out above what is now a very crowded and saturated market place. 

writing for travel blogs

Writing my travel blog

As well as inspiring people to travel , like these guys, I also want to give practical advice on how to do it. My blog has advice on transport, money, where to stay, trip planning, itineraries and packing lists to make travelling as accessible as possible to my readers.

The best compliment people can give me about my blog is that it inspired them to travel, entertained them and made them laugh.

You don’t have to define and limit yourself straight off though when you’re writing for travel blogs. My advice would be to let your style, tone and topics instinctively evolve over time and with every post you write. You’ll soon come to find your natural writing flow and hopefully be distinctive too.

50 tips for travel bloggers on what to write and how to write a travel blog

Always be yourself

When I went to the Traverse conference in Brighton everyone was excited to see Will Peach on his panel. His open, truthful and at times offensive writing on thegonzotraveller.com and the now defunct travelsexlife.com was definitely entertaining whether you loved it or hated it. When I met him he didn’t seem the same as his douchebag online persona and a few weeks later he came out with this article about his disillusion with the travel blogging industry. After that he only posted a few more blogs before he went on to focus on the brilliantly written, yet less offensive, willpeach.com.

Will’s angry voice was so distinct in the hyperbolically positive world of travel bloggers, but he wasn’t being himself. I’m glad he’s found his flow on his blog now – it’s still one of the most insightful out there.

Travel Blogger High

You’ve got to be yourself in travel blogging.

That’s the number one rule about putting any creativity in the public space. This is scary. I used to worry about people reading my stuff and sometimes I look back at my past work and wonder what I was on. But, I did what was right at the time. If you start worrying what advertisers / other bloggers / your mum, thinks then you’ll lose what’s interesting about you in the first place.

I also think that when you start writing a travel blog it can be hard to portray who you really are. You may be so used to writing for school or work that writing with a blog style and flair doesn’t come easily. This can also be improved with practice. The more you read travel blogs, and write your travel blog, the more you can work on your travel blogging voice.

How often should I blog?

Whenever you have something to say is always the best answer. I aim for at least twice a week but usually end up doing quite a bit more. Under promise and over deliver is my motto – even if it’s between me, myself and I.

The more you write the easier and better it will become. Worryingly I’ve seen a few resolution lists for this year where bloggers have said they want to ‘up their blogging output’, but I just think this is a dangerous goal. Set your aims too high and then travel blogging just becomes another pressure to live by, and for most people pressure is a fun killer, which ruins the whole point of travel blogging.

How to be a successful travel blogger

My writing style  

I tend to write everything I want to and then fit it together. I just keep going until it’s all out and then go back and edit. Often I’ll write it on my phone when the inspiration hits then just use my laptop to edit as when I sit at my laptop I get to distracted.

I like to write into Google Sheets and then I’ll upload to WordPress and edit. It takes me AGES to write a blog post now. With all the research, writing, picture research, look at SEO and formatting, it’s at least a day.

Ideal length of a travel blog post

I like to write over 2000 words per article when I’m blogging about travel. Not all posts on my travel blog will be that long, but that’s the goal. In reading other travel blogs I think it’s hard to get your points and personality across in any less.

How to write a travel blog post

Learning how to write a good travel blog can be quite formulaic in the way it’s set out. Of course the creativity comes when you decide which words to choose. Think about these ‘rules’ when it comes to writing your travel blog.

  • Decide on a cool idea that you’re passionate to spend time writing. 
  • Write it, thinking in sections though. The best travel blog posts are divided by headers to make it easier for the reader. 
  • Think of a good headline that will draw the reader in and make them want to read more. 
  • Think in 500-1000 words. I know I said I do 2000, but I think that can be quite overwhelming if you’re still learning how to write travel blogs. 
  • If your idea is too big, then break it down into easier sections and write a few blog posts instead. You can always craft them back together again when you’ve finished, like my backpackers guide to Vietnam . 
  • Use photos to bring the post to life. If you know how to use Photoshop or Lightroom them brighten and edit for the best result. If not, don’t worry about it. 
  • Make sure you have a few H1s and H2s in there to help us readers, read the post. 
  • Proof read. 
  • Publish. 
  • Share! Social media is really important for travel bloggers. It might feel scary at first, to share your travel blog. I mean, I kept mine secret for at least a year. But the sooner you share the sooner you’ll get readers. And at the start your friends will help you to get word out there. Then they’ll get jealous of you travelling, but that’s future yous problem. 

Once you’ve learned how to write a travel blog, you can really start to have fun with it, and learn to express yourself through your love of travel.

Travel blogging writing tips

travel blogging changed

  • Write whenever the feeling hits you – even if that’s in the ‘notes’ section of your phone.
  • Keep practising – you don’t have to publish everything you write.
  • Read other travel blogs analytically as well as for fun.
  • Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
  • Write about what you want.
  • Use Pinterest to see what’s popular and for inspirational titles
  • Sign up to bloglovin ( follow me ) for a whole resource of inspiration. Make a note of the titles you actually click on.
  • Keep a spreadsheet, or similar, of all the titles you want to write. Use when necessary.
  • Keep a folder in your bookmarks of articles that have inspired you.
  • Offer to write for others to create your own incentives.

On that last point I remember way back when and I pitched to Flight Centre. I got a commission for three articles. At the time it was this financial incentive and the idea that they thought I’d be able to do it that got me going. I was so proud to see my work up on their blog and it just inspired me to write more.

Once you feel confident enough, start to pitch to other websites and blogs and see if they’ll accept your ideas. Here are a few travel websites that will pay you to write for them .

More travel blog examples

If you’re looking for an example of a travel blog post, then check out a few of these, from me…

Travel blog example 1: ‘Things to Do’ listicle

Fun things to do in a destination. There’s a bit of snobbery around listicles in travel blogging, but personally I think they’re a really important and useful example of a travel blog.

You need to do them carefully though, and with heart and experience. If you want to write about traveling, listicle posts can be a good way to get started.

Check out my guide to fun things to do in Hobe Sound , or the best things to do in Levi, Finland . My guide to the best things to do in Lake Maggiore is pretty good too.

What to do lake maggiore

Travel blog example 2: a trip itinerary

Trip itineraries are so important, and often the backbone of any good travel blog. A tried and tested step by step trip itinerary is worth so much for people trying to plan a trip to the destinations you’re writing about.

Check out my two week itinerary for the Philippines , or my Norfolk road trip to get an idea of how to set these travel blog trip itineraries out.

Travel blog example 3: a real insight

Only you can experience a destination in the way you do – that’s why the real insights into destinations are one of the ways you can stand out from the travel blogging crowd. If you feel like you’ve had a really unique experience, or want to share exactly what you thought of a place, then these honest insights can make for a great travel blog.

Check out ‘ What is Cuba Really Like ‘, and ‘ What is Vietnam Like ‘ to see what I mean.

Travel blog example 4: personal stories

Ooo you can’t beat a personal story on a travel blog. The trouble is, you either need to really enjoy writing it, or not care if people read it or not. These personal stories are very hard to rank in Google, but they’re good to help your readers get to know you.

If you want to read some of my personal stories then check out these posts about when my boyfriend and I split up , the shock of going into lockdown, and my best moments in travel blogging.

Travel blog example 5: helpful guides

My helpful guides to what you can for for 9 hours in Qatar on a layover , how to avoid festival toilets and how to manage the overnight trains in Vietnam are some of the most popular posts on my travel blog.

If you’ve had a unique experience that will help other people who may go through the same then write about it!

Fill it with useful advice, personal anecdotes and interesting titbits to keep your readers intrigued, and Google showing it to them.

If you’re blogging about travel there’s no end to what you can write about!

How to blog about travel in a pandemic

Ok, so feeling inspired to blog about travel during a global pandemic has been difficult.

Us travel bloggers have had to rethink, reuse and try harder than ever to keep readers interested and ourselves inspired. It’s not been easy.

You can see my latest posts to see what I have managed to write a travel blog about – mainly paddleboarding in winter , my pledge to walk 1000 miles, and responsible travel tips , as well as my camping trip to the Outer Hebrides and the most fun days out in the UK .

How to create a travel blog in 2018

What you write about on your travel blog goes back to what you think a successful travel blog is . If you’re after views something like 50 reasons to travel in your 20s will do well, but if you want to flex your first hand experience a heartfelt think piece could be just your thing. I like to mix things up depending on my mood.

I really hope these travel blog writing tips have helped you see how to write a travel blog post. Writing a travel blog isn’t easy, and keeping it up is even harder. But once you settle in, and find your groove, you’ll start to enjoy it. 

When it comes to your travel blog you could write about anything – so long as you have the passion for it – that’s what’s so good about being a travel blogger. Just a coffee you enjoyed somewhere unique, an interaction with someone or a whole guide to your take on a destination could make for an interesting article with the right enthusiasm, interest and execution.

How do you decide what to write about on your travel blog?

Such a lovely guide. Just what I needed. I am just starting my own travel blog. I have put it off for too long but the passion of travelling… I struggled with what to write and was already focusing on likes and audience. Your post has really inspired me and now I have about 6 topics I can write on(that’s after I figure out how to use WP properly). Thank you very much.

Thanks for this – some good advise and ideas for me. I have had my blog on hold for the past 6 months. I have quite a few posts written but everytime I go back to them the message I want to give changes as I am in a different mood! So everything remains in edit mode!! Hopefully after reading your posts I will get the confidence to post soon.

Yeah the passing of time and changing of self is a weird one. I’ve got posts on here that totally make me cringe because I don’t necessarily agree with what I was on about at the time. But, the thing is, it’s like a time capsule. It captures us and our thoughts in a moment in time which is exactly why we should publish right away. Our thoughts and opinions can have an expiry date!

Great post with some good ideas for me as I am thinking of getting on with the bog I have had in edit mode for the past 6 months! Just need that confidence to post, but find what I want to say about each idea changes depends on the mood I am in when I go back to it!! So nothing posted yet… soon, I hope.

Before it was difficult for us to get idea and find topics to write about. But what we did is to just find out what is popular and create something about it.

Yeah that totally makes sense! Good plan!

Good idea Tristan!

Points are really great and I really love them. As we all know that writing something regarding traveling without getting your audience bored is not so easy. These points would definitely help us in creating new and unique posts.

Hello, oh I’m happy I could help!

Interesting points you have here. Like it! 🙂

Thanks Julex!

This is good beginning

i didnt notice that you wrote this on your blog, what an inspirational advice for someone like me. Thank you for let me know another inspirational travel blogger. It encourages me to write more

Great news! Glad you’re enjoying my work and to hear that it’s helped. I try!

First time I’ve seen this; have to say it’s a really great series. Best of luck with it.

Thanks for the mention too. Couldn’t have put it better myself!

Ah good, just read it again and I’m glad you didn’t find it offensive!

  • Pingback: VickyFlipFlopTravels » Cool Festivals and Epic Holidays |Travel Blogger High: The Online School for Wannabe Travel Bloggers

A really long detailed insightful post which is such a help to those starting out. Liked the tips about compiling engaging titles – something I really struggle with particularly when Google insists on short titles! Many thanks for sharing your tips.

Holy Cow. I’m so unbelievably glad I found you. This is by far the best advice I have ever read. Thank you so much!!

Aw, thank you! That’s one of the nicest comments I’ve read! 🙂

Great article! I love Brenna’s blog and started writing one when in moved to London from Australia but rarely update it even though I have so many notes with adventures I have been on. I know people back home like reading what im doing but I am just lazy after I finish work.

Yeah, it can be pretty hard to get the motivation when you’ve been working all day. I know the feeling!

Another awesome post Vic! I couldn’t imagine starting a blog if I didn’t already have an idea of what to write but you handle the subject of getting started really well. Plus I remember those guest posts you referred to – you were our go to girl for great content 🙂

Thanks Jayne. Yeah nor me, but I think sometimes there’s so many options it can be hard to pick something. I remember for my A Level English coursework I could choose any two books I wanted to write about and it took me about three months to choose the book and then a week to write it. I imagine getting started can sometimes feel like that. You just need some guidelines to get down to it.

Ha, thanks!

Again a really helpful and interesting post! My travel blog is just a travel diary at the moment but I’m looking forward to expanding it and writing about more things! Your vietnam writing was how I found your blog too, and it inspired and helped me so much with booking my trip out there in November! Thanks Vicky! X

Yay, love it when people tell me that Vikki 🙂 And happy I’m helping you to think about your blog too. Thanks for reading!

Thank you so much for including me here! I’m loving all of this advice so much – this is such a great guide for both beginners and those of us who have been around for a few years. x

No worries Brenna – I love your blog!

I can’t remember where or when I read it but it went something like this: “when the student’s ready the teacher will appear” and here you are! In my quest to create a useful blog I’ve read a lot, in fact I’ve read so much I have no idea what’s right and what isn’t. I’ve had a yearning to be me “warts n all” to write in my voice but have been scared it would hold my blog back, here you are giving permission to be me. I hope one day in the future when I have an audience I can write a post that has such a profound effect as this post has for me. Thank you Vicky for writing this post.

Aw, thank you Rob. Your comment has made me really happy. I’m really enjoying helping people in Travel Blogger High, and getting all these comments. And yes, the best, most honest and most interesting person you can be is you, so go for it and have fun!

Some great tips – lots of food for thought. I’m usually in the too many ideas, not enough time camp, so I’m actually trying to focus on writing the right pieces this year, whether that’s the ones I really want to do or the ones I think will appeal to readers (both for usefulness and hits…!). Like you say, when you’re putting pressure on to hit targets, the fun goes out of it.

Some of the best ones I’ve done have been ones which really touched a nerve with me, and so with my readers too, or the ones which filled a niche as no-one else has written about them, like you mention. I slightly fell into those by accident, so the tricky bit for me is working out what other niches are waiting to be filled!

That’s a good idea to think about their usefulness. I find that I go with the one that inspires me most in that minute that I’m choosing which one to write. I guess it depends whether you want to be a bit more tactical about it, which I probably should be. Yeah, if you can find something you’re interested in that no one else has written about you’re definitely onto a winner!

I don’t really have much to add to this. I come from another niche (whoop whoop for lifestyle/food/fashion) but thoroughly enjoying the challenge of writing for the travel niche. I started out with a spreadsheet of over 100 titles for blog posts and it keeps growing. I have so much to write and there’s not enough time. Ahhhhh!!!!

I love blogging, writing, sharing and travelling – so for me, travel blogging is a real passion project.

Agree with the spreadsheet and reading blogs analytically as well as for pleasure.

Yeah that’s how I feel. Especially when you’re travelling full time as well. Every day you see new things and have new experiences you want to write about it’s really difficult to keep up! I love it too though – wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

Dave the Diver plunges into PlayStation Plus Game Catalog April 16

Dave the Diver plunges into PlayStation Plus Game Catalog April 16

Game director reveals a hidden treasure trove of mini-games.

travel bloggers reading

Greetings. I’m Jaeho Hwang, the director and game designer behind Dave the Diver. I’m excited to bring Dave the Diver to PlayStation 5 on April 16 , expanding the game’s horizons and inviting more players through the PlayStation Plus Game Catalog. 

Dave the Diver is a unique hybrid ocean adventure that combines ocean exploration with sushi restaurant management. At the heart of the game lies the core gameplay loop, narrative, characters, and captivating mini-games. 

Our journey kicked off with a simple concept: a diving game in which a deep Blue Hole serves as a mystical dungeon populated by fish that double as enemies and items to loot. In the early days of the prototype, the gameplay revolved primarily around catching fish and trading them for currency, but we soon felt that we could do more with these aquatic creatures. 

This led to the introduction of a sushi restaurant mechanic that allowed players to prepare culinary delights from their underwater catch. Of course, this was enough to make for good gameplay, and as the lynchpin of our gameplay loop, this addition was praised in internal reviews. However, in an effort to spice things up and prevent monotony, we focused on our unique characters to create compelling and fun side content which ended up adding a dash of individuality to the experience. 

Cooking contest

While the initial gameplay focuses on preparing the menu and serving delectable dishes in the bustling sushi restaurant, players will later find themselves entangled in the culinary excitement of a cooking contest. This addition elevates the gameplay beyond just serving food and immerses players in a new cook-off experience that complements the game’s overarching theme. 

Seahorse racing 

Halfway through the game, players will stumble upon a new deep-sea mini-game allowing them to send seahorses to race through the village. With a variety of seahorses sporting unique stats scattered throughout the Blue Hole, the feat of collecting and racing these creatures adds a thrilling element to the gameplay experience. 

Taking photographs

Beneath the waves of the Blue Hole lies a diverse ecosystem, where players will encounter both aggressive and peace-loving amiable fish species. In the midst of this underwater tapestry, players can now enjoy the tranquil activity of photographing these peaceful aquatic inhabitants. Players earn rewards by snapping shots of these creatures without the need for combat or capture and presenting their discoveries to Udo, the photographer. You should also try your hand at photographing some fish that only appear at night!

Duff’s rhythm Game 

This is the most delightful twist that caught everyone off guard; What on earth is this rhythm game with an anime title song doing in the diving game?! One of our characters, Duff, an avid fan of Stra Stella – a fictional anime within the game – embarks on a musical journey to attend a dream concert featuring beloved characters. To inject a burst of dynamism we introduced this mini-game with a vibrant backdrop, steering clear of monotony and offering a refreshing twist to the overall gaming experience. 

We set out to present different gameplay elements to create a new kind of experience, mixing everything from culinary showdowns to rhythmic reveries. And, of course, it’s all brought to life by a cast of charming characters. Additionally, Dave the Diver on PS5 features haptic feedback and adaptive triggers for increased sensory engagement. Navigate the mysterious depths and feel the delicate vibrations in the variety of mini-games that await exploration in the deep-sea!  

Also a reminder: get ready for this coming May, as the legendary Godzilla makes his way into Dave’s world ! Stay tuned to witness what new fun this colossal kaiju will unleash. Remember, anything is possible in the Blue Hole.

Tales of Kenzera: Zau was also announced today as a Day 1 PlayStation Plus Game Catalog title. Learn more from about the debut action-exploration game from developer Surgent Studios.

Flooding on the A82 great western road in Glasgow on Saturday.

Storm Kathleen: Scotland hit by high winds, heavy rain and travel disruption

Flood and wind warnings remain in place, with Sepa warning of ‘real danger to life’ on coastal roads and paths

High winds and heavy rain from Storm Kathleen persisted through Sunday, battering parts of Scotland and Ireland and disrupting travel.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (Sepa) had 18 regional flood alerts and 37 flood warnings in place in Scotland. They have been in force since Saturday.

The Met Office has also issued a yellow wind warning from 9am on Sunday covering parts of the west and northern Highlands, the Isle of Skye and the Hebrides. It will remain in force until 11:59pm.

Winds as high as 73mph were recorded in Drumalbin, South Lanarkshire.

A previous warning stretched from the Scottish Borders to just south of Stirling. It spanned the west coast, throughout much of central Scotland, and ended just short of the east coast.

Janine Hensman, Sepa’s flood duty manager, said: “Across Sunday, we’ll continue to see high tides, storm surges and large waves across coastal areas. This combination is particularly dangerous – especially around high tides. There is real danger to life from wave overtopping, particularly around causeways, coastal roads and paths.

“While the risk is greatest around high tide times, our message is clear: Take extra care if you are near the coast at any point and stay well clear of waves and water. Be careful when travelling around exposed coastal areas and don’t walk or drive through flood water, as there may be hidden hazards.”

She added: “Whilst Storm Kathleen will ease on Sunday evening, another weather system is on the way. Significant flooding from rivers and surface water is possible in southern, central and north-eastern areas on Tuesday, with coastal flooding continuing due to high spring tides.

“Flood alerts and warnings are in place, so stay up to date though our website. We will continue to work with the Met Office to monitor the situation 24/7 and review regional flood alerts and local flood warnings as required.”

The Met Office has warned of potential power cuts, damage to buildings, poor mobile phone coverage and danger to life because of large waves and debris from beaches being thrown on to seafronts. About 34,000 people were left without electricity on Saturday, with a few thousand customers remaining without power overnight, but by Sunday afternoon almost all had had their supply restored.

CalMac, Scotland’s largest ferry operator, cancelled a number of its services and many other ferries were operating on reduced timetables, while others faced potential disruption.

ScotRail also faced a number of disruptions throughout the day, including to its Helensburgh Central and Dumbarton Central services.

However, the services, according to ScotRail, were “starting to return to normal”.

On Saturday, more than 140 flights throughout the UK were cancelled as a result of the storm.

In Ireland, a girl was swept out to sea from the east pier of Dún Laoghaire harbour in County Dublin on Saturday evening. Rescuers were able to pull her out of the water within eight and a half minutes, with a lifeboat volunteer revealing that pockets of air trapped under her coat helped keep her afloat before the rescue.

Andrew Sykes, a volunteer helm with the RNLI, told PA Media that the stormy conditions made the rescue operation difficult.

“With the high winds and storm we were experiencing, with large waves and surge coming off the pier, to get alongside her was extremely difficult,” he said. “She would be pushed one way and we would be pushed another,”

The girl was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Titanic Belfast was forced to close after strong winds damaged part of its roof on Saturday. However, the yellow wind warning covering Donegal, Mayo and west Galway was lifted at 4pm on Sunday.

The Hottest Luxury Second-Home Markets

Sales of luxury second homes increased in many U.S. markets last year. If you want to see some of the priciest, head to Rhode Island.

By Michael Kolomatsky

It’s hard enough buying a first home these days. Who on Earth is out there buying a second one? The wealthy, mostly: In 2023, sales of luxury second homes increased in many U.S. markets.

A study from Pacaso , a company specializing in brokering co-ownership home purchases, parsed data from the real estate analytics firm First American Data & Analytics to find the counties where sales of luxury second homes — “luxury” here meaning a sale price over $1 million — increased the most from 2022 to 2023. (Only homes designated for seasonal or recreational purposes were included in the study, and counties with fewer than 20 sales of luxury second homes were not included.)

In Newport County, R.I., sales of luxury second homes were up 64 percent, far surpassing all other U.S. counties. The waterfront county, known for its Gilded Age mansions, had an average sale price of $2,003,945 among homes in this price range. To get a sense of the overall market in Newport, we scanned the current listings there (second homes or otherwise) and found 83 homes priced for more than $1 million, and 71 for less.

The next greatest boost for luxury second homes came in Volusia County, Fla., which includes Daytona Beach. Sales rose 19 percent, but at a higher average sale price than in Newport, $4.1 million. Our Zillow research showed that as of Monday, among all listings there, about 300 were priced for more than $1 million, with about 5,500 available for less. That’s understandable: Volusia County is much larger than Newport and has many more residents.

The 10 counties with the most year-over-year growth for luxury second homes are shown in this week’s chart. In the New York tristate area, it includes Westchester County, N.Y., and Fairfield County, Conn.

In addition to transactions, price increases for luxury homes were also calculated in Pacaso’s study. Volusia County topped that list with a 47 percent increase in the average sale price from 2022 to 2023. Atlantic County, N.J., was next, with prices up 41 percent to an average of $2,9 million.
